Edwards is an English patronymic surname, meaning "son of Edward".

Recorded Edwards family history starts with William Edward, enrolled in the King's Curia at Suffolk in 1219. While it is originally an English surname, it became more popular in Wales, and in fact only there was the terminal "s" first added. Edwards genealogy includes many well-known people, such as North Carolina Senator and 2004 Democratic vice presidential nominee John Edwards, World War I General Clarence Edwards, and Enlightenment preacher Jonathan Edwards.
