Alfred M. Edmonds (1821 - November 23, 1893) was a Canadian cartographer, draughtsman, and artist. Born in Bishopstone, England, it is unclear when Edmonds immigrated to Canada. He was a school teacher in Burnstown, Ontario in 1863, and also appeared in a directory as a draughtsman that year as well. He created a sketchbook for the Haycock Iron Mine in Cantley, Quebec, in 1872. He worked as a cartographer for the Canadian Pacific Railway and the Canada Department of Reailways and Canals from 1881 until his death. In 1884, Edmonds worked as an assistant to Sir Sandford Fleming, the head of the Canadian Intercontinental Railway. At the time of his death, on November 23, 1893, Edmonds was an inmate at a local jail. At the time of his arrest on February 27, 1893, Edmonds was described as 'a pale, delicate-looking man, who it is thought was insane'. The coroner, after the inquest into Edmonds's death concluded, stated, 'We expess our disapproval in the detention in jail of such a case...which was one for a charitable institution.'
