WALTER FRANCIS ELDRIDGE 1844-1902


Walter Francis Eldridge was a solicitor born in London. He married on 17 May 1866 at the Old Church, Saint Pancras, London to Charlotte Eliza Parkin. They had twelve children. Walter died on 29 Nov 1902 aged 59.

Their grandson Leslie Stuart migrated from Liverpool to Sydney, Australia in 1912 and he enlisted for WWI in the Australian Imperial Force on 5 Jul 1915 however he was discharged as being medically unfit on 27 Aug 1915 due to rheumatism. Leslie died on 13 Feb 1919 at Lachlan Street Forbes NSW.

The Daily Examiner newspaper of 20 Feb 1919, published at Grafton NSW, included a small report on his death. It reads "The death is reported from Forbes of Mr. J. Elderidge, who for several years resided at Ulmarra. His only relative in Australia is Mr. J. Retallick, Ulmarra. His mother resides in England".

Rupert Louis Eldridge, a great nephew of Walter Francis Eldridge, also migrated to Australia in 1956 on the Orion along with his wife and son.
