About John Edmundson

"I was born at Little Musgrove in Westmorland, in the North of England, in the year 1627; my father and mother's names were John and Grace Edmundson. My father was well accounted of among men who knew him, and religious in what he knew. I was the youngest child of six my parents had. My mother died when I was about four years old, my father also when I was about eight years old. We were left in the care of my uncle, my mother's brother, who used us harshly, and my brothers and sisters left him, but I stayed with him several years, being young. My eldest brother, who was heir to the estate my father left, when he came to the age of twenty-one years, with my eldest sister's husband, went to court against my uncle about our inheritances, and other injuries and wrongs; and they spent a lot of money doing so."(1)
