Welome to My Guestbook

Because there are so many idiots around who love filling guestbooks with rubbish, I have disabled the automatic guestbook function, however, if you would like to email me feedback, I would be pleased to include it below. You will have to modify the address a bit because I am trying to avoid spam.

This is what others have said

Message: Thanks guys. It's been a lot of work but, I think, worth the effort.
Tony McAllister is a bloke I used to work with Dave and who gave me a lot of guidance on places to search for info when I first started work on the family history.

The new website is just brilliant - encompassing so much about what makes you tick! Loads to browse around, and you've made it all look so easy - especially the diagram of your immediate family tree.

I've passed your message on to a couple of other old members so you may hear from them as well. Good Luck

Message: Hi Ian,
Great site mate, I thought I would look up my old club to see if it was still going and landed here. I am sorry to hear that Southwark Fisheries has closed, I used to be the match organiser, well for one season anyway before I handed it back to Charlie Brunt, they were good times fishing the docks.
Cheers mate,
John Kelly

Unfortunately this site still needs a lot of work on it but it has had to take a backseat due to my involvement with Rob, Robin and Dave entering data for the edgeler.me site. I look forward to looking up your site again and also seeing you all on TOTP (or is that old hat now?).
Very best wishes Ian

Message: Welcome Mason and thanks for leaving a message.
My particular part of the family, back to about 1800, comes from central and south London but contacts over the last few days seem to confirm that like all the other Edgelers that I have encountered, it comes originally from around Elstead in Surrey.
Incidentally I have not found any evidence yet that it is connected with Edgley (or any of the other misspellings - JUST KIDDING). No doubt somebody will prove me wrong fairly quickly.
Also I haven't made a direct link yet with the Edgelers around Gravesend but again that will probably not be long in coming.
Anyway good to hear from you and any info you have would be most welcome

Message: Hi there Ian,
My Dad is an Ian Edgeler also, and we live up in Scotland. I live in Glasgow, and my family live in Edinburgh. My Dad was born and raised in Kent, England, along with his brother, Barry. My Grandad still lives in Kent, also an Edgeler, and he has been researching a family tree as far as I know.
I have sent you an e-mail, mail back and we can try and arrange contact between more Edgeler's!

Message: Hi Ian, my name's Karen Edgeler and I just found your website by chance. I've read your guestbook and see that my auntie Lorraine is already on here! I also live near Dagenham in Essex, England, but don't know any other Edgeler's outside of Essex (there's a lot of us in Essex). You're right, it is an unusual name. I can be contacted on karenedgeler{at}yahoo.com, but I haven't got any family tree info. Sorry

Message: Hi Ian,
I live in Dagenham, Essex, England. My family all come from Brick Lane, East London originally. I have heard that the Edgeler name really originated in Witney, Oxfordshire. I do know from my 'Burke's Peerage World Book of Edgelers' that the Edgeler Clan Worldwide reside in England, Scotland, Wales, America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Do you know of any others? I think that we are all distantly related in some way. You can contact me on ledgeler.home{at}tiscali.co.uk

We are Edgelers too (well Brian is and Kate is by marriage). We are part of a family from West Sussex. We know some of our history. Brians grandfather has looked into some of the history. One of Brians cousins has been to visit some Edgelers in New Zealand.

Message: Hi Ian, just thought I'ld drop you a line again to let you know that I have now researched just over six hundred and seventy nine Edgeler's dating back to 1620 and one at 1570, but the search is slowing and would welcome any support or knowlage as regards the history of one's family from your web page readers or guestbook viewers, cheers Don George at kassel{at}actrix.co.nz

Message: Hello Ian
Looking for some relatives in the UK. My great, great grandfather was Thomas Edgeler, married to Eliza Lovett. Two of their sons later emigrated to the United States. William came over in 1907. My great grandfather, Thomas Henry, married to Clara Peverall, came in 1913.
Just wondering if any of this sounds familiar.
Look forward to hearing from you.

His father was George Edgeler of well to be quiet honest im not sure,any way just to let you know there are a few more of us out there.I am a soldier currently serving in cyprus,im married and have two sons so the name will continue to grow (hopefully)
