Here is an excerpt from my file. I forgot where I even got this info:

III. RICHARD EDLYN, Jr. B. 1565 in Pinner Marsh (Harrow-on-the-Hill), Middlesex, England--D. bef. 8/27/1616 in Buckingham, England. Note: "Harrow-on-the-Hill" was a small village with a 200' hill on which stands an ancient church where there once stood an ancient heathen temple. Also in Harrow is Harrow School, an old influential school. Winston Churchhill went to school there. Pinner is likewise a nearby village. They are all now part of Middlesex and it is all a part of greater London.
ISSUE: (NOTE: The reason for the change in spelling of the last name is, from what I have read, that Margaret was from Prussia and wanted her children to have a more German sounding or looking name so changed it from Edlyn to Edelen).
1. *Phillip Edelen, b. 1598 in Pinner--d. 3/22/1656/57 in Denborn(Buckingham), England. Became a Pastor or Minister of the "Established Church"-m-Catherine Offley (See below).

He was a Pastor or Minister of the Gospel. He held three "Degrees" from Emmanuel University, Caimbridge (England). He was one time Rector of St. John Zachery, Aldergate Ward, London (At one time the Puritans sacked, looted, and burned his Church). A memorial to Rev. Philip Edelen is on the south wall of St. Mary's Church, Denham, Bucks, where he is buried and where he took refuge when the raiding Puritans sacked his church of St. John Zachery and the Rectory in retaliation for his loyalty to the Crown and Established Church. Here is what his memorial says:
"Here lyeth Philippe Edelen, a man of rare endowments, singular integrity, holy Conversation and a most prudent solide and constant preacher of Truth in the most difficult times wherein he lived, continuing unmoved in the principles he had first layd and dying a true sonne of the Church of England, March 22nd, 1656 and of his age 58."
