JOHN ELDRIDGE 1789-1871


John Eldridge was born at Mayfield, Sussex, England. It is thought that he may be the son of John Eldridge born 1756 and Katherine Powell as they were in adjoining households in the 1841 census at Mayfield. John was an agricultural labourer in 1841 and on the 1851 census he was the Parish Clerk.

John first married Philadelphia Blackman on 5 Apr 1812 at Mayfield and they were both of the Parish. They had four children baptised at Mayfield before John remarried at Mayfield on 5 Dec 1823 as a widower to Kitty (Katherine) Verrall. Their five known children were also all baptised at Mayfield.
