Edridge was the son of a tradesman and apprenticed at the age of fifteen to William Pether, a mezzotint engraver and landscape painter, and became proficient as a painter of miniatures, portraits and landscapes.
His subjects included Lord Nelson, the explorer Mungo Park, the Methodist missionary Thomas Coke, the Prime Minister William Pitt and John Wesley at the age of 88.
Sir Joshua Reynolds was so taken with one of his miniatures, that he insisted on having it and paid him handsomely for it. He did wisely in copying many of the works of Reynolds for study.
