THOMAS ELDRIDGE 1823-????


Thomas Eldridge is recorded as being born at Rye, Sussex on the 1871 census and in Sussex on the 1881 census. On the 1851 census he is shown as born Tunbridge however this seems to be an error as that was the birthplace of his wife Frances. He is shown as a railway guard in the 1851, 1871 and 1881 census.

Thomas was shown as a Guard on Eastern Counties Railway when he married and his father shown as Thos. Eldridge, farmer. He is taken to be the Thomas baptised at Iden, Sussex on 22 Oct 1822 son of Thomas and Ann Eldridge. Thomas Eldridge married Ann Vaughan at Iden on 8 Apr 1816 and they were both of that Parish.

A great grandson, Thomas Eldridge born 1875 at Camberwell, Surrey migrated to Adelaide, South Australia where he was the postmaster at Paradise. He is buried along with his wife Alice at St Martins Cemetery, Campbelltown, Adelaide, SA.
