Edney Family Genealogy Forum
I am not at all sure that there would be a connection between your family and mine unless you trace your family back to Somerset, England.
You say that your family were in the Portsmouth area of England in the late 1700s but the member of my family who went there did not go till about 1870s. Before that they were in Somerset. I can trace the family in Somerset back until the early 1800s and provisionally before that into 1700s. There were quite a few Edneys in Somerset in the 1600s.
I do not think that travel would have been very easy between Somerset and Portsmouth and Southsea which are in Hampshire before the train service developed.
