EADWARD.  The same as Anglo-Saxon Eadweard (q.v.), meaning "rich guard," from Old English ead "happy, rich," and weard "guard, ward." (History of Christian Names, Yonge, 1884).  Some render the name "defender of his property."  Modern English, Edward.  Cf. Eadgard.

... Eadward, the son of Æthelred and Emma, the brother of the murdered and half-canonized Ælfred, had long been familiar to English imaginations, and, since the accession of his half-brother Harthacnut, the English Court had been his usual dwelling-place...
