It is a small world!My wife and I used to visit Valdese, back when the old Waldesian bakery was still in operation. It was such a pleasure to know that one was entering the town with the wonderful fragrance of fresh-baked bread and such. We thought that the drive from Winston Salem was worth it all. The area is beautiful and the people very friendly.
I just think that the move of the apprentice of our Henry Tapscott to the Pasquotank area was very interesting since Henry's wife was Ann Edney, and the Edney families having settled in the same, just does not smack of coincidence to me.
What kind of work did Robert Edney do?Was he a shipbuilder or carpenter as well? The Pasquotank area people certainly depended on ships to carry on their day to day lives.
Henry Tapscott and Ann Edney were married sometime before 16 May 1711 in Great Wicomico Parish, Northumberland Virginia. That was the date on which they signed the apprenticeship aggreement with Richard Nichols.
