Edward Davis or Davies (fl. c. 1680-1688) was an English buccaneer active in the Caribbean during the 1680s and would lead successful raids against Leon and Panama in 1685, the latter considered one of the last major buccaneer raids against a Spanish stronghold. Much of his career was later recorded by writer William Dampier in A New Voyage Round the World (1697).
Possibly of Flemish ancestry, he is first recorded as one of the members of the "Pacific Adventure" led by Bartholomew Sharp and John Coxon in 1680. Briefly serving as a navigator, he and several others including James Kelly left the expedition within a year and returned overland through Panama with John Cook or Cooke.
In August 1683, while selling captured prizes in Virginia, he agreed to join a privateering expedition as a quartermaster under Cooke. Sailing eastward, they soon captured the 36-gun Delight (or Bachelor's Delight) shortly after arriving off West Africa. Sailing to the Pacific by way of Cape Horn, Davis and the others were joined by John Eaton before raiding Spanish cities along the coast of present day South and Central America.
