Edgley Early Origins



The surname Edgley was first found in Essex where the family name was first referenced in the year 1278 when William and Richard Eggell held estates in that county. Other early records revealed that some of the family resided at Standerwick in Somerset. "Standerwick Court, the seat of Admiral Harry Edgell, is a handsome mansion, in the grounds of which are the remains of an ancient encampment, supposed to have been the connecting station between Bath and Alfred's tower at Stourton."
