Eliezer Edwards

I have just purchased two books about Birmingham by Eliezer Edwards, however I am struggling to find any information about the author. I have found references to South Wales, St. Paul's Square in Birmingham, the Church of Latter Day Saints, gunpowder and so on. Does anybody have a definitive answer please.
