I AM THE THIRD GENERATION TO BEAR THIS UNUSUAL NAME, AND THE SECOND GENERATION TO BE CALLED JOSEPH EDWY. (JOSEPH GOES BACK AT LEAST 6 GENERATIONS.) I HAVE NOW FOUND 6 OTHER PEOPLE CALLED EDWY. THROUGH THIS PAGE. 2 ARE  IN THE U.S., ONE OF WHOM HAS ABOUT TEN EDWYS IN HIS COUSINS, ONE IS HERE IN THE U.K., ONE IN AUSTRALIA ONE IN BRAZIL & ONE IN INDONESIA! ANY MORE OUT THERE???
I HAVE ALSO DISCOVERED THAT AN EDWY WENT DOWN WITH THE TITANIC!
HE WAS EDWY ARTHUR WEST WHO WAS A CHORISTER WITH TURO CATHEDRAL IN CORNWALL, AND THERE IS A MEMORIAL PLAQUE  TO HIM IN THE CHURCH. THERE ARE MORE DETAILS AT ENCYCLOPAEDIA- TITANICA.
I (WITH THE HELP OF COUSINS BOTH CLOSE AND DISTANT)  HAVE TRACED BOTH MINE AND MY WIFE’S ANCESTRY BACK TO THE EARLY 19th CENTURY AND BEYOND, THIS OF COURSE IS ON GOING, SO PLEASE CHECK BACK NOW AND AGAIN TO SEE WHAT HAS CHANGED.
