I am seeking information about any descendants of THOMAS ETHERIDGE who was my great great grandfather and lived in the area of St Leonards in the Borough of Shoreditch, London during the 1830's.
Thomas Etheridge married Mary Turner and they had 14 children (8 sons and 6 daughters).
The son's names were:
2-Edward Masterman Etheridge (my great grandfather)
3-Donald Oliver Etheridge
4-Thomas Saver Etheridge
5-Alfred Thomas Etheridge (Major General, C.S.I)
7-Walter Joseph Etheridge
8-Henry Whitbread Etheridge
The only daughter whose name I have was Isobel Etheridge who married a David Haggar(one of 3 brothers of John Etheridge's wife-whose christian name I do not know-who married 3 of the 6 Etheridge daughters).
Isobel was the last survivor of Thomas and Mary Etheridge's 14 children and she died in 1921.
Information I have on further descendants is as follows:
1-Robert Etheridge had a son, Robert Etheridge Jnr.
2-Edward Masterman Etheridge married Charlotte Bartlett Bowman at Geelong, Victoria Australia on 25 April 1860 and they had 4 children-Ada, Hilda, Ethel and Percy Edward Etheridge (my grandfather).
3-Donald Oliver Etheridge died without issue.
4-Thomas Saver Etheridge had 2 (maybe 3) daughters, Lilian and Haidee Isobel and 2 sons, Frederick Rowton Etheridge and Arthur Etheridge.
5-Major-General Alfred Thomas Etheridge C.S.I. had a son, Cecil De Courcy Etheridge who was also in the military rising to the rank of Lt.Colonel and receiving the D.S.O. in 1902 for the South African War of 1900-1902 and a C.B.E. in World War 1, 1914-1918. Cecil De Courcy Etheridge died in 1940 aged 84. Alfred Thomas Etheridge also apparently had a daughter who in turn had a daughter, Shirley Goach who became a Lt.Commander in the British Royal Navy.
6-John Etheridge married a Haggar (christian name unknown) and had 2 daughters, Florence and Eveline and 3 sons, Herbert, Reginald and Ernest.
Florence lived in Sydenham, London in the 1930's and the beginning of the 1940's. (She corresponded with my father Arthur Edward Etheridge during this time).
Eveline married Harry H.W. Sparkham.
Herbert Etheridge died in July 1940 and had a son who was killed in World War 1 and that son had a son called Harry H.R. Etheridge.
Reginald Etheridge died in 1924 (?) and had a son, Hugh Dunsdale Etheridge who was killed in France in World War 1.
7- Walter Joseph Etheridge (nothing further known).
8-Henry Whitbread Etheridge (nothing further known).
I would most appreciate any further information about any of the above descendants as well as details of Thomas Etheridge's forbears or details of where to go for more assistance.Kindly send any such information to my email address. Many Thanks.
