School Record of Rev. Philip Edelen EdelinWill of the Parish of St. Andrewes Undershaft, London, England dated 3-8-1656, probated 4-6-1657/8

Ancient Edelen arms: Ermine, a fesse vaire or/and gules. The more recent Edelens used a Swan as a crest but the ancient Edelen wills contain only the arms and no crest.

From "A Short Guide to the Church of St, Mary the Virgin, Denham" 1998 - Another interesting monument from the time of the Civil War is to a Mr. Philippe Edelen. Part of it, although slightly damaged, is still in the church. On a black stone is engraved the portrait of a man in a gown kneeling on one knee, the other supporting a book, on which his left hand rests, his right hand pointing to it. The inscription describes him as: 'A man of rare endowments, singular integrity, holy conversation, and a most prudent, solide, and constant preacher of Truth in the most difficult times wherein he lived, continuing unmoved in the principles he had first layd, and dying a true sonne of the church of England, March 22nd, 1656, and of his age 58'
