William Edge

William Edge was a mason and architect active, particularly in Norfolk, England, in the early- to mid-17th century.

He was born around 1584 and died, at Raynham in Norfolk, in 1643.

Edge is particulary noted for his work on Raynham Hall, Norfolk (begun 1620) and at Hunstanton Hall, Norfolk (begun 1625). Both of these buildings reflect Inigo Jones' classical, Court style, as did much of Edge's work.
