One branch of my family, Vorley, originates from Great Addington in Northamptonshire and were known to be living there in the 17th century.  In the Domesday Book, Great and Little Addington are recorded as Edintone.   It probably derives from a personal name viz. an ‘estate associated with a man called Eadda or Æddi’.

Welcome to my Edintone blog!  What is it all about, you ask?  This blog supplements my website with items of interest.  It might be because they are a little outside the scope of my site or I have not found a home for them yet, or responses to questions and points made by readers of my site.
