I 'm sorry I didn't get back to you earlier. Here is some information that I collected on Edney surname: In one dictionary on names, it says this: "The surnames Edney, Idney and possibly Iddon, Idden are from from it...it seems probable that it is related to the Old Norse Idhuna, the name of a goddess of spring, derived from the Old Norse idh 'work', labour'. Dorothy Reynolds in note #124 on this forum says says the following regarding the Edney name: "It has been recorded in England as far back as the 6th century according to other researchers. I found it in Scotish history and verified through the MacDuff Clan that one Edney family was a memeber of the MacDuff Clan. It also shows up in the Welsh genealogy of King George II and is spelled Edneyfed." See also Brent Richards note #69 on this forum.
