JOHN ELDRIDGE 1808-1870


John Eldridge married Elizabeth Schovel on 2 Apr 1837 at Fordingbridge, Hampshire, England. She was baptised at Fordingbridge the daughter of William and Elizabeth Scovel of Godshill. John is believed to be the son of John Eldridge and Mary Cross, where baptism records for Fordingbridge show them having children between 1798 and 1813.

Their youngest son Frank is shown as a shoemaker on the 1871 census at Godshill, near Fordingbridge when he was with his recently widowed mother. He migrated to the USA and is shown at Toledo, Lucas County, Ohio on the 1880 census as a shoemaker. He married Matilda Smith (or Schmidt) with census records indicating they had 9 children with 7 surviving in 1910. Frank died at Toledo in 1929 with his son Ralph showing Frank's father as John with his mother being unknown.

Alfred William Eldridge, a grandson of John, migrated to the USA in 1913 having previously lived for a few years in Canada. He settled in Lucas County, Ohio.
