  • Origin of Name

    Wild Edric was a Saxon Lord from Shropshire. He was a leader of the English Saxon resistance during the Norman Conquest. Legend has it that he married a fairy princess who agreed to marry him, as long as he never reproached her. They lived happily together for many years, when one morning he reproached her and she instantly disappeared. Heartbroken, he wandered the countryside in search of her but never found her. His ghost is said to be still seen riding across the Shropshire hills.
