Edwards, was an English novelist, journalist, traveller and most successful literary works included the ghost story "The Phantom Coach" (), the novels Barbara's History () and Lord Brackenbury (), and the Egyptian travelogue A Thousand Miles up the Nile ().Resting place: St Mary's Church, Henbury.

This chapter discusses the ordinary circumstances of the voyage of the author up the Nile. The author hired a moderate-sized boat called a ckan'geh (or ckan'jeh). It was navigated by seven men, who had to find their provisions at their own cost; and the Reilyis (or captain) was bound by a written agreement.

The author had with him two servants; a Nubian and an Egyptian: the. I found the Yankee among the boats listed for sale in Connecticut, but unlike all the other vessels on the site, which are merely listed with basic information and a price tag, this one was accompanied with a narrative that recounted the boat’s fascinating story including its historic mile voyage up the Nile.

This chapter describes the scenery around the river Nile. It discusses the names of Lower Egypt and of its principal provinces. It gives an overview of the customs of the peasants of the Bohhey'reh. It then describes the entrance of the Mahh'moo'dee'yeh.
