JAMES ELDRIDGE 1812-1889


James Eldridge was born 8 Mar 1812 and baptised 29 Mar 1812 at Saint Mary, Harmondsworth, Middlesex, England son of John and Martha.

He married Margaret Hay at St John The Baptist, Hillingdon, Middlesex on 21 Nov 1832 and the witnesses were Robert Eldridge and Elizabeth Russell, his brother and his future wife. Census records from 1851 to 1871 record James born Harmondsworth and Margaret Eldridge living at Sipson with six children.

Their daughter Naomi married William James Wakelin in 1862 and they migrated to New Zealand.

Their sons John, born at Sipson, Middlesex, England and Charles, born in Middlesex, are known to have migrated to Queensland, Australia.

John first married Eliza French, the daughter of George and Mary Ann French at Harlington, Middlesex on 25 Dec 1869. They migrated to QLD on the Great Britain departing Liverpool on 25 Oct 1873 and arriving at Morton Bay on 1 Jan 1874. They were accompaning by their children Mary Ann aged 4, Alfred 3 and Sarah 1. Sarah died on 28 Dec 1873 just before the ship arrived. They had further children in QLD before Eliza died on 8 Feb 1904. John was shown as widower aged 52, born Sipson, Middlesex, England on his second marriage on 11 Jan 1905 at Warwick, QLD to Elizabeth Mary (Lizzie) Martin. She was born at Ipswich, QLD on 23 Feb 1879, the daughter of John Martin and Anne Wynne. John died aged 83 years and 2 months on 9 Jan 1933 at Warwick. As he was shown aged 5 months on the 1851 English census this indicates he was aged 82 on death. His death registration indicates he had 14 children to Eliza and 5 to Elizabeth. Elizabeth died on 9 Aug 1941.

Roy Eldridge born about 1901 and Harry Eldridge born about 1905 both show their parents as John Eldridge and Lizzie (Roy) / Elizabeth (Harry) Martin on their marriages in 1927 and 1928. Whilst they are both listed as children of John and Elizabeth they are not shown on John's death registration and may be adopted or children of one of John's daughters and raised by John and Elizabeth.

Charles migrated to QLD on the Southesk arriving 1 Aug 1878. He married Mary Jane Birmingham, the daughter of Thomas Birmingham and Ellen Wrin in Warwick, QLD on 2 Nov 1880. They did not have any children. Mary Jane died on 9 Jul 1924 and Charles died age 81 on 12 Aug 1933 at Dunwich, QLD.
