JAMES ELDRIDGE 1801-1866


James Eldridge is shown on the 1851 census as a shoemaker born at Wadhurst, Sussex, England. He first married Dinah Dann on 6 Jul 1823 at St. Michael, Lewes, Sussex. They has three children before James remarried on 25 Dec 1832 at the same place as a widower to Frances Goldsmith. She was a spinster and they were both of the Parish. James and Frances had two known children with all of James children being baptised at Mayfield, Sussex.

James is thought to be the son of John Eldridge born 1756 and he is speculatively shown as the son of one of the children of William and Susanna Peckham who married on 26 Apr 1750 at Mayfield and had eleven children at East Hoathly, Sussex between 1751 and 1768.

Siblings Luther and Blanche Evenden, great grandchildren of James Eldridge, migrated to Australia. Luther, with his wife Margaret and son Rupert Leonard, travelled on the Wilcannia in 1911 and the family settled in New South Wales where he died on 15 Aug 1958 aged 74 and Blanche migrated on the Mantua in 1921 to Victoria where she married George Holder in 1921 and she died in VIC in 1972 aged 86.

Roderic Francis Eldridge travelled by aircraft to Australia departing the UK on 6 May 1969 under the Assisted Passage Migration Scheme.
