JOHN ELDRIDGE 1773-1855


John Eldridge was baptised on 7 Feb 1773 at Fringford, Oxfordshire, England. He married Sarah Alley on 21 Jun 1801 at St Clements, Oxford, Oxfordshire and they had twelve children baptised at Ambrosden, Oxfordshire between 1802 and 1821. John was a carpenter. Sarah was buried on 12 Jul 1832 at Ambrosden. John died on 17 Nov 1855 at Ambrosden and was buried on 21 Nov 1855.

Their son William, probably also with his elder brother Thomas, migrated to America in about 1825. William married at Easton, Pennsylvania. Most of their other children lived in Oxfordshire.

A great grandaughter Fanny Eldridge married Joseph Harry Morris at Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire in 1892 and they had 6 children. The whole family migrated to Australia and settled in the Kyogle area of New South Wales. Fanny and her 5 youngest children travelled on the Rangatira from London to Sydney in 1912.

The invaluable assistance of Charles Henry Eldridge is acknowledged in providing the basis for the detail in this family and the photograph.
