Robert Edge of York may have been that Robert Edge, aged twenty-five, who sailed from London on the "Hopewell," Thomas Babb master, about the middle of September, 1635, and arrived in Boston in the latter part of November. If so, his whereabouts for the next fifteen years is a mystery. Possibly he went home and crossed the Atlantic again with his wife and children shortly before 1650, when our Robert Edge was an inhabitant of York in the Province of Maine. Edge had a grant of land from the town of York in 1650 and it was confirmed on July 3, 1653. It was in the "lower town," near the sea, and here he doubtless built his house. With his fellow townsmen he signed the submission to Massachusetts in 1652, his name preceding that of his neighbor and probable future son-in-law Philip Hatch. He took the Oath of Allegiance on November 22, 1652. Florence, wife of Robert Edge, in 1654 . . . commented on the admiration which Goody Parker, wife of John Parker, later the keeper of the York gaol [jail] . . . felt for the manly charms of Richard Banks. She was speedily in court, justly accused of slander. Apparently she had been under bond for good behavior, and, her offense being considered a forfeit, she was sentenced "to receave tenn lashes on the bare skine" or pay 10 into the county treasury. She seems to have got off, however, for 5s., the officer's fee. In June, 1655, a complaint that he did not seek to apprentice his children was lodged against Edge, and it was decided that the selectmen should see it done. The Edges moved to Kittery in 1661, settling on the land of Capt. Walter Barefoot without his consent. On April 23, 1662, Robert and Florence Edge and their son Peter deeded to Peter Twisden three acres of marsh lying on the western-most branch of the York river, which had been granted to Edge by the town. He described himself as "now of Kittery, sometyms of York." His new home in Kittery was mentioned many years later in 1721 in depositions by John More and Thomas Adams. They stated that Robert Edge lived within three or four rods of the creek that goes to Braveboat harbour, between the creek and the house where Christopher Mitchell now lives. No deeds of this property were recorded. Capt. Francis Raynes sued Edge for debt in 1665. The house and land of Robert Edge are several times mentioned in deeds dealing with the property of Capt. Richard Lockwood, an abutting owner, and on September 10, 1672, Capt. Lockwood brought suit against Edge, but failed to enter the writ, Edge being awarded costs. The time of Edge's death is unknown. Florence Edge ("Gamar Edge") was still alive in 1690, in the care of Anne Crockett of Kittery, her board being partly or wholly paid by Joshua Downing. Downing had married a daughter of Philip and Patience Hatch, and the aged woman was in all probability Mrs. Downing's maternal "grandma." Of the Edge children only the son Peter is certain. Child: Peter. Probable child: Patience. Possible children: Florence, Anne. [ref 46:1-475]
