Edingale

Edingale.-This parish had the honour of having had for its incumbent the antiquarian the Rev. Theophilus Buckeridge. It contains 900 acres, 217 inhabitants, 50 houses, and real property valued at £1334. The living is a perpetual curacy worth £80, in the patronage of the bishop of Lichfield. There is a raised way at Edingale, which Plot thinks was a Roman via vicinalis. Harwood states that in the time of Stephen the manor belonged to William de Rydware, as it had to his ancestors. In the reign of John, William de Gumages held it, and afterwards the Somerviles. "Whilst in their hands an exemption was granted to the tenants of Edingale from attendance at the manorial court at Alrewas." From the Somerviles it passed to the Pipes, and from them to the Vernons. It has since been in the possession of the Ansons.
