In her post "Wisdom Wednesday: Websites for Village Histories", she provided a link to a free site that gives historical information about villages in the UK. Following this link, I found the information for Wednesfield, Wolverhampton, UK which is where my Ede family came from, according to what I have found so far.
I typed Wednesfield into the search box on this site, and it gave me a short little history on the area.
This brought me to a page listing various resources.
I went back to the main page, and on the left hand column was a link for "Related Websites"...have to follow that and see what is available.
Anyway....I eventually ended up at Wolverhampton History. This site provided not only historical information, but pdf indexes. I began checking each one, looking for any Ede family name that was remotely familiar. And I found it:
A quick jump over to Wikipedia, and this is what I found on St. Peter's:
"St Peter's Collegiate Church is located on the highest and the oldest developed site in central Wolverhampton, England. For many centuries it was a chapel royal, and from 1480 a royal peculiar, independent of the Diocese of Lichfield and even the Province of Canterbury. The collegiate church was central to the development of the town of Wolverhampton, much of which belonged to its dean. Until the 18th century, it was the only church in Wolverhampton and the control of the college extended far into the surrounding area, with dependent chapels in several towns and villages of southern Staffordshire.
Fully integrated into the diocesan structure since 1848, today St Peter's is part of the Anglican Parish of Central Wolverhampton. The Grade I listed building, much of which is Perpendicular in style, dating from the 15th century, is of significant architectural and historical interest. Although it is not a cathedral, it has a strong choral foundation with the Music at St Peter's in keeping with English Cathedral tradition. The Father Willis organ is of particular note: a campaign to raise £270,000 for its restoration was launched in 2008." (courtesy of Wikipedia: St. Peter's Collegiate Church)
That is one amazing church! Maybe someday I will get to visit in person, and see this, as well as where they lived and worked.
