Edna may have been born at Halifax Parish, West Riding, Yorkshire, Enland. She was a sister of Henry Halstead. In a letter from her brother Henry Halstead: " Your ant marvelled at you that you can have such a good heart to marry soe sonne being in a strange country."
Apparently Richard Bailey "brought with him to Rowley his wife Edna."
