Tracing the Eldridge Family Tree

30th October 2008

Christopher Ross Eldridge:

Hello Caroline,

Interested to find someone with the surname Lancaster on the same page as the Eldridges. My mother was born Mavis Lancaster (her side all from the Burnley area). She married Dennis Charles Eldridge (most unhappily, I'm afraid).

Now, my Eldridges have been traced back in some detail by Robert Eldridge in Australia, he has us back to Thomas Eldridge, who married Hannah. Dates missing. They had a son, John Eldridge (1754-1829) who married Ann (?). I'm directly descended.

The first names "Thomas" and "Christopher" crop up often in our line.

So far as I know, by the mid-1800s these Eldridges were in London. Several were in the Royal Navy.

I wonder if anyone has Thomas Eldridges and/or Christopher Eldridges back there in Battle that might tie in.

My grandparents lived in the Medway towns, I went to school in Chatham. For some reason, we've wandered up to Northumberland.

Thanks, folks!

Ross Eldridge

Fun stuff, isn't it?
