Essays on the Foulke Family History
Over the course of time, there have been quite a few things in our
family's history have merited a second look, a little bit of
analysis, or just a little more explaining. Here is a
collection of essays that strive to fulfill that purpose.
Homesteads and Places
- Rhiwaedog: The
Bloody Hill of the Red Wolf -- This supreme treasure is in the
form of a stone mansion, in which generations of descendants of one
of the most powerful 12th century Welsh Lords, our ancestor, Rhirid
Flaidd, lived. So ruthlessly did he rule ...
- Coed-y-Foel Isaf: Our Last Welsh
Home roots: -- When Edward and Eleanor departed from
Coed-y-Foel Isaf in 1698, they probably never even imagined their
descendants would return three centuries later. Read one current
Foulke family's story about their visits to the Welsh farm.

history of the old mansion.
- The Burgess
Foulke Home, Quakertown, Pa. -- When the freeway came to
Quakertown, it threatened to destroy the home originally occupied by
a descendant of Edward and Eleanor, the first Burgess of Quakertown.
