The original lower section of this page has been moved to Edwards03 to enable the following to be placed here.
Sir Thomas Edwardes, 1st Bart of Greet (Grete) & Shrewsbury, Sheriff of Salop (b c1600, bur 27.04.1660) - continued above

2. Sir Francis Edwardes, 2nd Bart of Grete & Shrewsbury (b c1645, bur 23.12.1690, Colonel)
  TCB reports that the patent of his father's baronetcy was supposedly lost in the Civil Wars and, as it never "passed the Seals", was considered invalid so that a new patent was created for Francis with precedence as from his father's creation. TCB (vol 2) shows Francis as the 2nd Bart and then stops listing the baronets. TCB (vol 4) shows Francis as the 1st Bart, his son as the 2nd, etc.. We follow BP1870 in showing his son as the 3rd, etc.
