Dates of existence


The Edwards family descended from Iddon ap Rhys Sais of Cilhendre, Shropshire. They adopted the surname Edwards in the early 16th century. Thomas Edwards (1592-1667) of Cilhendre and Plas Yolyn, was one of the civilian envoys deputed by Thomas Mytton to negotiate the surrender of Anglesey (May-June 1646) and Harlech (March 1647). His fellow envoy was John Jones the Regicide. He also served as governor of Wrexham in 1647. He was the father of Thomas Edwards (d. 1668), who married John Jones's niece, the daughter of Watkin Kyffin, the estate agent of the Chirk Castle estate. His heiress, Julie, married John Morrall. Josiah Morrall of Holywell, surgeon, owner of Plas Yolyn when he died 1745, left debts of £1,400. His widow, Margaret sold the estate to William Challnor of Cilhendre, Dudleston, Shropshire, in 1748. Cilhendre was demolished in 1794.
