king Edward. Hedley was afterwards a De Clare manor, and this may not be the same place. There is an Elderbury Wood in Hedley, and there is just a possibility that Hedley might be meant by the manor of Richard de Tonebrige called Eldeberie (35, b. i.), only that is in Blackheath Hundred, which makes the identification with Albury more likely.
