Edward Morgan was a Welsh politician and became the Deputy Governor of Jamaica in 1664, after the Restoration of the monarchy under Charles II. One daughter, Mary, married his nephew, the privateer Henry Morgan. Another, Joanna Wilhelmina, married Henry Archibold.
Hostilities between the English and Dutch in 1664 led to a change in government policy: colonial governors were now authorised to issue letters of marque against the Dutch.[n 1] Many privateers did not take up the letters, although an expedition to conquer the Dutch island of Sint Eustatius led to the death of Edward, who was leading a 600-man force.
