Edward Cardwell was a demonologist who lived in the seventeenth century. Together with Charles Sadler, he is also regarded as one of the two first hvetshranologists. They are the two first known to have encountered Hvetshran, as is recorded in their log book.
Born in 1606, Edward Cardwell was the youngest out of eight siblings.
He died in 1665 in London because of the great pest epidemic that struck there back then.
