I have traced my Edwards family back to the late 1700s to the Quantocks
area - west of Bridgwater - farming stock. I wonder whether there is any
connection. My ggggrandfather was Arthur Edwards - from Broomfield, I think.
At least his son, Charles Edwards was living in Broomfield at the time of
his marriage in 1846. Charles married a Mary Hannah Norman whose father was
a James Norman - also from Broomfield.

are from 1700's East Brent, Somerset England. Family legends however state
that the family was originally from Wales. Would be interested in contact
with any Edwards surnames who have had this test done to compare results.
