From what I have heard from family is that Robert Edwards ( a supposedly pirate)ship went down somewhere between England and New York. He willed the land to siblings and their children. Siblings of Robert Edwards are Susan Rebecca Edwards, Rueben Nathaniel Edwards and John? Edwards. Anyway, either Robert or Thomas (Robert's father leased the land to two brothers for 99 years or so the story goes. When the brothers died the land then was suppose to go to the Edwards family but it never did. The Edwards were suppose to claim the land after the 99 years were up but no one claimed therefore the land would be sold to the highest bidder. Which in this case was the Trinity church. Hoped this help some.

I believe this page really explains it in detail. I am the great great granddaughter of Catherine Edwards who was an heir. http://www.genealogy.com/users/b/y/n/Sharron-Bynum/FILE/0003page.html

The land in question was originally owned by Robert Edwards. In all actuality it is still owned by Edwards Heirs. There was lot's of dirty dealings done way back when. I could say more but choose not to.

The cause of the Fredonian Rebellion was that a man named Edwards was trying to take claim of the land in Texas that was still part of Mexico. When the people that lived there could not produce deeds Edwards started kicking them off the land.

Haden Edwards had been given an empresario contract by the Mexican government in 1825 to settle 800 families near Nacogdoches. When Haden Edwards arrived in East Texas he found that there were already people living on the land that was part of his empresario contract. The terms of his contract required him to respect the property rights of people already there. Many people did not receive land titles or could not find them. Haden Edwards offered to sell them new land titles. The settlers complained to the Mexican government. The Mexican government said that Haden Edwards could not charge people for new land titles. The Mexican government then canceled Haden Edwards' empresario contract in October 1826. Benajmin Edwards, the brother of Haden Edwards, took matters into their own hands. Benjamin Edwards and a group of settlers and Cherokee Indians part of East Texas to be the independent Republic of Fredonia. Benjamin Edwards and his men rode into Nacogdoches and took over the Old Stone Fort and adopted a declaration of independence for their republic.

what land? when? where? The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the "Mormon" church) owns a lot of land, but most of it is open to the public. Most of the church buildings and temples owned by the Church have beautifully landscaped grounds that are always open to the public. Food produced from church operated farms, orchards, and ranches is available to anyone in need, regardless of their religious affiliation.

No. Real estate consists of the land, anything permanently attached to it, any appurtenant rights, anything growing on it and anything under it such as minerals.
