In 1638 Gergely Édes along with his wife, Katalin Kerekes and his brothers; Vince, Mátyás, György and Ferenc were granted nobility by Ferdinand III Emperor of the Austro-Hungarian empire. They settled in and around the village of Madar, now known as Modrany, in south-western Slovakia.
In 1865 their descendant, Albert Édes stated that “it is actually without any doubt that all the Édes spread all over the home country are descended from the same clan.” He listed the places where other Édes families lived. That served as a starting place for this One Name Study
The following cities and towns have the oldest church records of Édes households in the old Kingdom of Hungary. We hope in time to clarify the relationships between family branches and lines.
