From Pauline Flemons 18/7/2013:

William Edwards (BORN 1772), the mayor, was the son of William Edwards & Elizabeth Small, according to St Lawrence church parish records.

I'm pretty certain that his father was Richard Edwards of the Cwm. I have a record passed from Barbara Jackson that WEBV inherited the Cwm from an uncle, (probably another Richard), who died childless. There is quite a number of memorials to the Edwards family of the Cwm in St Swithin's church at Clunbury.

Certainty: Sarah Susan Edwards was daughter of John Edwards and Martha.

I spent most of my early childhood in Clunbury with my father’s Godmother Mrs Louise Morris at Clunbury Hall,and later in my teens with the old farms which had been part of the family Estate,The Home Farm(Cwm Farm) The Llan,The whole Cwm Estate (Cwm Hall) had been in the family pre Parish records.My grandfather died in 1920 wounded in the Great War,the Estate was sold off, and my Grandmother left for Monte Carlo,with her children, who went to school at the Lycée.When I was quite small, as we drove over the little bridge,I used to say to myself,”You are entering a different world”I am always drawn back to this very special place,as sandra Morgan,( a childhood friend)always tells me,ancestral voices are calling me back.
