"Edingale or Edengale, in the vale of the Mease, seven miles N by E of Tamworth, is a village and parish of 197 souls, and about 850 acres of land, adjoining Derbyshire. The Earl of Lichfield is lord of the manor, but the soil belongs to a number of other freeholders. The parish feast is on the first Sunday in June. A raised way, which passes through Edingale, towards Lullington, is supposed to have been a Roman via vicinale, or bye road."
[From History, Gazetteer and Directory of Staffordshire, William White, Sheffield, 1851]
