My name is John Edmonds and I am the Webmaster of this site. I am a direct descendant of Joseph Edmonds born in 1745 in Beckley, Sussex, England.  

I started this website to research my own family and create a vehicle for others to contribute and pass along information about the Edmonds family. I have hundreds of photos given to me by my uncle Robert Edmonds and will be scanning them for others to download. As well, I am conducting research on the internet and posting what I find.

Please, if you have any information regarding any of the people in the Edmonds Family Tree, please update this website with your information or email me. I would love to receive full names, birth dates, marriage dates, death dates, locations, and stories about anyone related to my family. I am also happy to pass along any information to others.

If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me.
Our family tree is posted online on this site! There are 53 names in our family site. The earliest event is the birth of Joseph Edmonds (1745). The most recent event is the death of Cecilia Edmonds (2000).

Genealogy:Welcome Jill Stevens!
Posted by: John Edmonds on Oct 10 2008 08:09

I was recently contacted by Jill Stevens who is the grand daughter of George Edmonds (1891-1955) son of James Edmonds and Elizabeth Burr.

Jill's mother Audrey is the daughter of George Edmonds, brother of my grand father Edward Edmonds. Audrey is 81 years old now but still remembers my grand father coming to visit her parents in Kent and also my father George.

It is wonderful to know another member of the Edmonds Family and I look forward to learning more about The Edmonds Family Tree through Jill.
