JEREMIAH ELDRIDGE 1810-1893


Jeremiah was born in Kent, England. He was convicted of stealing at the Kent Assizes on 30 Jul 1832 and sentenced to life. He was transported to NSW on the Asia arriving on 27 Jun 1833 and is recorded as being a married farm labourer 5'2½" tall, fair ruddy freckled complexion with brown hair and grey eyes. He was allowed to remain in the District of Queanbeyan. Ticket of leave No 41/2089 8 Oct 1841. Conditional Pardon No 50/23 19 Jan 1850. He married Mary Ann Freebody on 6 Dec 1850 at "Woolway" Monaro, Cooma NSW. She was the daughter of Simon Freebody and Susannah Miles and was born on 14 Jun 1833 at Richmond, NSW. Their 11 known children were all born at Cooma NSW. The birth registration of their last child shows the previous issue as including one male and one female deceased suggesting a total of 13 children.

Jeremiah died at Wambrook, near Cooma, on 10 Nov 1893. His death registration shows both parents unknown and the headstone at his grave shows his age as 81. Mary Ann died much later on 19 Jul 1924 with her death being registered at Cooma.
