In the following source, some of the patents are the same as above. This is just a different source, but since it goes further, it also includes Edward Wade making his own patent by 1662. If he was the first Edward mentioned in the colonial records, he would be about 50 years old. When he made one of his pattents he refers to land owned by Francis Burwell who also had Thomas Hampton as a neighbor. At this time, Edward lived in Hampton Parish, York County. This is the first time Edward Wade and Thomas Hampton are shown living near each other. Therefore sometime after this date, it would be easy to imagin that one of Edward's sons married Thomas Hampton's daughter, Mary.
