JAMES ELDRIDGE 1842-1927

James Eldridge and Eve were recorded in census records for St Pancras in Chichester, Sussex, England from 1881. They were shown as Aldridge in 1881 and from 1891 as Eldridge. These records show the age and birth place of James as age 31 born Newick, Sussex in 1881, age 49 born Farnham, Hampshire in 1891, age 57 born Chichester, Sussex in 1901 and age 69 born Newick, East Sussex in 1911.

James and Eva are not known to have married. Available civil birth registration records show the surname of Eve as Eldrige for Amelia, Hoadley for James to Percy (with Oadley for Lucy), Johnson for Ellen and Mary and Eldridge for Frank and Violet.

Amelia was baptised at Newdigate in Surrey on 13 May 1873, shown born by the roadside on 13 March 1873, as Melia the daughter of James Eldridge and Eve Johnson, tramps of Horsham in a private baptism. The baptisms of James in 1878, Lucy in 1881, Percy in 1886 and Ellen Esther in 1888 all show the parents as James and Eve Aldridge and the 1893 baptism of Mary Elizabeth shows her parents as James Eldridge and Eve Johnson. This all suggests that Eve was Eve Johnson with the reason for the recording of Hoadley as a surname being unknown.

A grandson, Arthur Ernest Priestley who was born at Gosport in Hampshire, migrated to Queensland, Australia in 1928 on the Esperance Bay. He later served as a fitter in the Royal Australian Air Force during WWII and he died in Queensland
