THOMAS ELDRIDGE 1769-1849


Thomas Eldridge was a labourer of Edmonton, Middlesex, England. He married as a bachelor to Mary Taylor, a spinster, on 15 Sep 1802 at All Saints, Edmonton and they were both of that Parish. Their address was Bury Street on the baptisms of their seven children at All Saints. Thomas and Mary were at Winchmore Hill when the 1841 census as taken. Mary was buried on 23 Apr 1848 at All Saints aged 68 late of Winchmore Hill and Thomas was buried on 21 Jan 1849 at St Andrew, Enfield aged 79 late of Enfield Town.

William Eldridge was born 21 Jun 1805 and baptised 15 Sep 1805 at All Saints, Edmonton. He was shown as a letter carrier in the 1841 and 1851 census. His known children to Ann were all born at Richmond, Surrey. Ann is thought to be the Ann Douglas who married William Eldridge on 5 Sep 1830 at St George Bloomsbury, Middlesex. Christine Mabel Eldridge, a granddaughter of William, migrated to the USA on the SS Oceanic departing Southampton on 13 Sep 1911 and arriving at New York on 20 Sep 1911. She is shown in the photograph below with her husband and children whilst on a visit to England in 1921.

John Goodson Eldridge was born 1 May 1807 and baptised in June 1807 at All Saints, Edmonton. He married Elizabeth Freshwater on 4 Aug 1833 at All Hallows, Tottenham, Middlesex. A grandson William Eldridge, born 23 Nov 1863 at Winchmore Hill, Middlesex married Annie Jane Litchfield Winchmore Hill on 25 Dec 1885. She was the daughter of John Litchfield and Ruth Hill and was baptised on 4 Dec 1859 at Bedford, Bedfordshire, England. The births of their first two children were registered at Edmonton, Middlesex and their third child, William Goodson, had his birth registered at Boxhill, Victoria, Australia suggesting the family emigrated to Australia in the late 1880s. Annie Jane's mother, Ruth Litchfield, nee Hill, was present at the birth of Alice Amelia on 4 Feb 1893 at Durham Road, Surrey Hills, VIC. William died at Melbourne East in 1908 aged 44 and Annie Jane at Balwyn in 1918 aged 60.

James Eldridge was born 21 Oct 1821 and baptised 18 Nov 1821 at All Saints, Edmonton. He married Maria Simmonds on 22 Dec 1850 at St John Hampstead, Middlesex. He was a National School Master and they had four children before he died in 1860 at Norwich, Norfolk, England.

A descendent of Thomas and Mary was Ernest Arthur Douglas Eldridge. He was a well known motor racer in the early 1900s in England and Europe. He held numerous speed records including the World motor vehicle speed record in 1924 at 145.89 miles per hour over one mile and this was the last world record set on a public road.
