Edward Hodson Bayley (1841 – 7 March 1938) was an English businessman, London omnibus manufacturer and politician during the 19th century.
By 1868, Edward Bayley, inspired by the American ideologies, intended to unite majority of the transportation companies as the London General Omnibus Company. However, his plans were thwarted by the Templars.
Bayley, as the only omnibus manufacturer in London, was harassed and threatened by the Templar-affiliated gang Blighters after the downfall of their omnibus businesses Attaway Transport and Millner Company. He was chased by the Blighters on carriage and saved by the Assassin Evie Frye. They rode to Pearl Attaway's former omnibus factory to steal the deed and return it to Bayley, securing his family's safety.
In return, Bayley introduced Evie to the founders of the London General Omnibus Company and notified her that they would start working in supplying omnibuses for the city.
- In Assassin's Creed: Underworld, Bayley's name appeared in a dossier about known Templars in London, despite there being no evidence of such an affiliation in the game.
