ROBERT ELDRIDGE 1828-1873


Robert Eldridge was born at Bethnal Green, London, England on 3 Mar 1828 and baptised the following year on 15 Feb 1829 at Saint Matthew, Bethnal Green. His three elder siblings were later baptised at that Church on 25 Jul 1830. Robert was a shoe maker and he married Mary Ann Slater on 3 May 1847 at Saint Matthew. They had six children all born at Bethnal Green.

From the mid 1860s Robert's wife Mary Ann had a relationship with Frederick Chapman and she married him in 1874 as a widow following the death of Robert in 1873.

Robert's son James joined the Army in March 1878 and was in the 58th Regiment of Foot which departed for South Africa in 1879. In 1881 he was in Mauritius on a special detachment and was discharged sometime after March 1882.
