That is wonderful to know  that this research is continuing.
I'd live to have a copy of what you have found so far   Maybe I can add some more information to the list.
How do I get you my email address.  I understand it's not recommended to make it available via a message here.

Thank you Peter and Bob for answering my post. I'm so excited to get into some family tree research.

Rosemary - the ceremonies remembering the start of the Gallipoli campaign reminded me that another Edlin (your Henry's second cousin) died of typhus in that part of the world while in military service.

His probate reads:  "EDLIN Arthur Laban Leeder of 12 Snows Cottages Falmouth Cornwall private 2nd Battalion Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry died 10 April 1919 in Mesopotamia Administration London 11 December to Kate Edlin widow.  Effects 40"

I have not yet looked at his service record in detail, but he is buried in the Tiflis British Cemetery and was awarded the WWI war Medal.

Regards, Peter

Thank you David and Peter for this information.

Do you know where I may be able to see or obtain any documentation.

My main goal with tracing my family tree is to give my own children a history of where they come from.

Thank you all so much for your help.

As the original one name thread

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,129116.0.html

has been locked for sometime I have decided to open a new one.

Can I suggest that those who are interested identify their link into this family and how far back they have managed to get.

I have no specific link with this branch of Edlins but do have large tree back to 1580 in Denton and I am aware of the collection of information from wills which show possible links back to William Edlyn born 1490.

My own interest is a one name study of the Edlin family worldwide.

David

I am here as I have recently learned of my family history going back to 24th October 1856 when the ship 'Joseph Fletcher' arrived in NZ. I descend from William Edlin who was 7 months old at time of arrival to New Zealand. It is the family tree from here that I am very interested in and perhaps could even ad to it.

Would anyone like to assist me?
