    Faulkner's Fold Grandfather's Clock - Notice the photograph of Grandfather Edward Edwards on the wall next to the clock - and the beautiful ceiling beams.

    Edwards/Hickman Home - Faulkners Fold (ca. 1950)
    The Faulkner's Fold house is over 1000 years old and was owned by the Edwards' clan for generations. It is listed in the Domesday Book. It was identified as the "Chimney House" because of the tremendous chimney on one end of the house.

    Sandra Edwards remembers...
    We found Faulkner's Fold, the Chimney House, just down this narrow cindery road. Our driver suggested that we go to the door and explain we were the Edwards from America. The owner was a lovely old man, Mr. Taylor, whose wife was in a nursing home. Without hesitation, he asked us in and offered us a drink.

    Declining, he then offered us a cup of tea, to which we said yes, and he put the electric teapot on. We couldn't believe it, but he said we could wander the house and take any photos we wanted - except no photos of him. The house still had the same beautiful ceiling beams that were always there.

    If you compare the old photo with the one taken of Dan outside the house, you will see that a new dormer has been added, the middle chimney taken down and the door moved. Beryl Penfold has told us the house is now a registered landmark and can not be changed on the outside. Considering it is about one thousand years old, it is in very good condition, both inside and outside.

    Needless to say, it was quite a day for us and especially for Dan - to be standing in the home where his father had grown up.

    Edward Edwards 1849-1926 Headstone
    The headstone is in the graveyard of the Church of St. John the Baptist in Doddington, UK. The church was built in the 1840's to serve as a poorman's church for the quarrymen and farm workers. It is located on A4117 midway between Ludlow and Cleobury Mortimer, 18 miles from Kidderminster. It is about one mile from Faulkner's Fold and served many members of the Edwards family.
