WILLIAM ELDRIDGE 1765-1836


William Eldridge, a wheelwright, is shown as the father of Jane Eldridge, a spinster of full age, when she married Richard Clutterbuck on 26 Jun 1838 at Cirencester, Gloucestershire, England.

On the 1851 census at Cirencester an Elizabeth Eldridge, a widow aged 80, is the head of a household with William Eldridge as her widower son aged 51 and grandsons John Eldridge aged 18 and Henry Clutterbuck aged 8.

Ann Eldridge was an unmarried lodger shown aged 74 born Cirencester in the household of Jane Clutterbuck on the 1871 census and her birthplace and age suggests she is a sister of Jane.

The burial on 10 Jul 1836 at Cirencester of William Eldridge, age 71 is assumed to be the father of Ann, William and Jane.

William Eldridge, a 3rd great grandson of William, died on 14 Oct 1913 aged 14 in a coal mine pit explosion at Senghenydd, Wales when four hundred and thirty nine men and boys were killed in the explosion or died from the effects. This disaster was the worst in the history of British mining. He is remembered on a cemetery plaque at St Martin's Church, Caerphilly.
