red mail Did John Burridge Remarry( and have more children? ) After Sarah AnnBurridge Died?n/ Kerridge Family at Portsea, Portsmouth,Southsea,Islington,Edmonton, Maldon ?
My grandfather's youngest brother was named Joseph Karridge (Kerridge?) Burridge and Joseph was born to John Burridge and Sarah Ann Burridge (nee Kerridge) in 1874. His birth was registered at Maldon, Essex. A later census gives his occupation as Fishmonger. He married in 1895 to Alice Young. This marriage was registered at Portsea 1895 Dec. quarter. Joseph K. Burridge also married Eliza M. Williams 1926 June quarter registered at Edmonton. Joseph had brothers and sisters, eldest first : Phebe Burridge who married Louis Raven; Jessie Burridge who married Henry James Young;Emma Burridge who married Harry Franklin Harrington (sometimes shown as Franklin Harry Harrington); Arthur John Burridge m. a Sarah Frances ....? Faith Burridge married Francis William Wyatt;William Richard Burridge married Lily Maud ....? Louisa Burridge, died in her first year; Frederick George Burridge, married; Charles Edward Burridge (my grandfather) who married Alice Mary Slight 1st wife, Melinda Elizabeth Brown 2nd wife, Dorothy A Saunders 3rd wife; Walter James Burridge married Alice Elizabeth Aldridge. Joseph Kerridge Burridge was the youngest of 10 children. I would be glad to hear from anyone who thinks their family tree connects them to either Joseph Kerridge Burridge or his mother's married name of Burridge and her family name of Kerridge. (I am not aware of any connections to either of the villages of Burridge or Kerridge at present). I believe John and Sarah's marriage was in 1858, registered at Maldon , Essex where all their children's births were also registered. John Burridge married a Louisa Kerridge in 1886 at Islington (his 1st wife's sister) but I do not know whether they had any children who survived. Thank you for any extra information regarding these families of Burridge, Kerridge, Raven, Harrington, Young, Aldridge, Wyatt, Slight, Brown, and Saunders.

red mail Ballards Portsea and Kent
My GGGfather was Thomas Ballard, who was a coastguard for part of his life, and lived in Kent. His coastguard records give him as born in Portsea Hants 1794. The 1861 Census gives Thomas as being A 62 (B 1799) and the actual Census sheet clearly gives him as born in Portsea Hants. NB The transcribed sheets have an error, giving him as born in Herefordshire (I think). I can find no internet related cofirmation of his birth, other than the above, but have assumed (ie. yet to be proved), that as all the dates were right, he was a son of James and Ann Ballard, married in Portsea 1793. The current board, lists James and Ann as having 5 named children, but does not include Thomas. Can anyone help me on this. I have a query also with Ann, being, Ann Newton. In the 1861 Census she is living in Portsea with her daughter Charlotte. Her age is given as 84 (ie B 1777). The only record of Ann Newton I can find is Anne Newton - Born Portsea 1771. The name and the age of Ann Ballard in both the census and at Ann's death (1870) do not agree. Has anyone a confirmation that Ann Ballard was Ann Newton.

red mail Littlefield - Edwin Frank, Portsea
Littlefield - Edwin Frank, Portsea (May 06) I am trying to find out about my great grandfather, Edwin Frank Littlefield, b1882 in Portsea. His parents were Joseph and Jane/Sarah Jane. Their other children were Joseph 1877, Emily 1880, Ellen 1881 and Sarah 1885. He married my great grandmother, whose name I don't know, but I believe she may have been from Morecambe, and they had children Iris - my grandmother, Kathleen, Harry and Fred, and at some time they moved to Finchley. He left her and the children, and never came back. My grandmother later moved back to Morecambe and ran a boarding house with "Aunty Emmy", and that's about as much as I know. I would love to find out more about Edwin and his wife, his family, and what happened to him after he left, and also to find out the names of my great grandmother, and "Aunty Emmy". Please contact me if you have any information or family links. Many thanks, Jo
