11B2.4 The Fourth Generation
Bibiana Norris, daughter of Rodolph and Dorothy Norris, married Francis Peake

The information given here is taken from the writings and files of Charmaine G.
Welker. The early Edelen history is contained in her manuscript, A Genealogy and
Ancestry of Richard Edelen21. She quotes
among her sources the research of Crolian William Edelen and published books by Harry W.
Newman ("Charles County Gentry"), William K. Rutherford ("Genealogical
History of our Ancestors"). and Lester Edlin ("The Edlins"), and
a manuscript by Vivian B. Edelen.
11B3.1. THE ENGLISH ROOTS
(a) Early Generations
Roger Edlyn of Hatchend was born around 1500 and was the father of Richard Edlyn
(1) of Pinner Marsh, Parish of Harrow-on-the-Hill, County Middlesex, England. Little
more is known of Roger Edlyn.
Richard Edlyn (1) of Pinner Marsh was born around 1530. His wife was probably Joane
Reding, daughter of Thomas Reding, who was a son of Richard Reding, a
groom of the Privy Chamber of King Edward VI. The children of Richard and Joane
Edlyn include Richard Edlyn (2), Henry Edelin, Morgan Edelin, William
Edelin, Edward Edelin, Roger Edelin, Agnes Edelin, and Mary
Richard Edlyn (2) was born around 1565 and about 1595 married Margaret
(surname unknown, born around 1570). Richard and Margaret had five known children: Philip
Edelen (born around 1598), Richard Edlyn (3), Alice Edlyn, Joane or
Hanna Edlyn, and William Edlyn (died 1639). Richard Edlyn (2) died in
1616 in Middlesex. His will was dated Aug. 5, 1616 and proved Aug. 27, 1616 in the
Peculiar Jurisdiction of the Archbishop of Canterbury in the Deanery of Croydon. He is
buried in the Parish of Sturkeley, County Buckingham. The relationship between this Richard
Edlyn and his grandson Richard Edelen, the immigrant to Maryland, has been
established by the College of Arms in London21.
(b) Philip Edelen
Rev. Philip Edelen, son of Richard Edlyn (2) and Margaret (surname
unknown), was born about 1598 at Pinner Marsh, County Middlesex, England. He was admitted
as a pensioner at Emmanuel College, Cambridge University, on June 28, 1614, and was
incorporated at Oxford in 1617. He was listed as a scholar in the Alumni
Cantabrigienses, having received three degrees21:
a Bachelor of Arts in 1618, Master of Arts in 1621, and a Bachelor of Divinity in 1628. On
Mar. 17, 1622 he was ordained a minister of the Established Church of England. C. G.
Welker21 quotes the records of Cambridge
University as saying Philip Edelen was Rector of North Cray, Kent in 1628, of
Alverstoke, Hampshire in 1631, of St. John Zackary, London from 1635 to 1637, of Bushey,
Hertfordshire 1642-43, and of St. Michael, Bassisham, London, 1656.
A History of the Church and Rectory of St. Michael's Bassisham, by W. B.
Passmore, from Home Counties Magazine, Vol. II (1900), as excerpted by C. G. Welker21, gives the following information:
"London, England, 1653
Philip Edlin was 'parson of the parish' until the restoration. Upon Mr. Ash leaving the
parish in 1651, there appears a curious account of some negotiations with Parliament as to
the election of a new minister. There were two candidates in the field, Mr. Jaggard and
Mr. Edlin, and much complication, going to and from with 'boat hire' and coach hire to
Westminster to visit 'Lord Whitelock', the Lords of the Council, the Commissioner of the
Great Seal, and so on. The inter-regnum must have existed for a lengthened period, for
there is a list in the vestry minutes of twenty-eight ministers who preached 58 sermons in
church to fill the gap between the going of Mr. Ash and the coming of Mr. Edlin. He must
have been elected in 1652, from which time he performed his duty to the satisfaction of
the parishioners. The Commonwealth marriages averaged from 20 to 30 a year, nearly all
being specified as taking place before a justice, 'and in the church of Mr. Edlin,
parson'. Whether he died or resigned his living does not appear; he is not mentioned as
one of the ejected ministers."
The published works of Rev. Philip Edelen include21
1. Sermon on 1st Corinthians 15th Chapter, 19th Verse, by Phil. Edelen,
London, 1653. "If with this life only in view we have had hope in Christ, we are of
all men the most to be pitied." Catalogus - Impressorum Librarum Bibliotheca in
Academia Oxoniensi Cura & Opera Thomae Hyde e Coll. Riginal Oxm. Prolobiflisthecaris

2. Lacrymae - A Book of Verses, by Phil. Edlin, 1619. Verses in Cambridge
University No. 5689.
3. The Christian's Hope. A sermon preached at the funeral of William Christmas,
December 16, 1652, by Philip Edelen. Printed for R. Thrale. Catalogue of the Thomason
Tracts in the British Museum.
Philip Edelen married Catherine Offley around 1630. Their children
include Christopher Edelen (1) (bap. Feb. 24, 1631), Anne Edelen (born Sept.
28, 1633), and Richard Edelen (4) (born around 1639). Rev. Philip Edelen
died Mar. 22, 1657 in Denham County, Buckingham, England. He is buried in St. Mary's
Church in Denham. His work with the Church of England is honored by a black stone mural
monument on the wall of St. Mary's Church in Denham.

Richard Edelen (4), son of Rev. Philip Edelen and Catherine Offley,
was born around 1639 in Middlesex, England19.
He married Elizabeth Banton on Oct. 29, 1663 in London. At some point Richard
Edelen (4) converted to Catholicism, and he immigrated to Maryland in 1664. He
returned to England in 1665, and his first son, Philip Edelen (2), was born there.
Richard returned to Maryland, registering his cattle mark on Mar. 22, 1667. His wife and
child came to Maryland in 1669. He received land for bringing his son to the colony.
Richard was appointed Deputy Surveyor General of the Province of Maryland on Nov. 10,
1676. Although Catholics were disenfranchised in Maryland when the Protestants took
control of the government in the 1690's, Richard Edelen (4) was requested by an
order of the Council to continue in his work as surveyor until further notice.
The children of Richard Edelen (4) and Elizabeth Banton include Philip
Edelen (2), Catherine Edelen, and Richard Edelen (5), Thomas Edelen (1)
(born 1672), Edward Edelen (1), and Christopher Edelen (3). Richard

died in Charles County before Dec. 17, 1761.
(c) The Third Generation
Edward Edelen (2) was born in 1717 in Newport Hundred, Charles County, Maryland. In

of Garrard's Run; also the plantation I bought of Adley Davis, in St. Mary's County, Md.,
called Truman's Hunting Quarter, 630 acres; also all the land called Westwood Lodge 100
acres, and three negroes, viz: Edward, Old Nan (wife of his negro Ned), Lucy and Locust
after my wife's death." Edward Edelen (2) was married to Susannah Wathen,

in Charles County in 1765. He married Catherine Wathen, daughter of Barton

was a son of John and Ann Wathen, so Joseph and Catherine were first

Westwood Manor, and Assington - when he immigrated to Kentucky around 1796. He is listed
