A recent response to an entry in The Midland Ancestor brought a response from a local person who has records of the Buckeridge line dating back perhaps 500 years. More information might be obtained on this to establish links if possible.
For now it is only known that the BUCKERIDGE family originates from the 1800s in London, England but although little is known of the early roots, several members of the BUCKERIDGE family are still known to living.
Emily Maud Buckeridge was born in Willesden, North London on 6th August 1889 and lived with her parents Richard Smith Buckeridge and Alice Maud at 73 Fermoy Road in Kensal Town, West London.
Richard Alice Maud
73 Fermoy Road in Kensal Town,
A visit to the road established that the building still exists. It is a large three story end terrace house which in its day would have been the dwelling of fairly well to do people. Now at the start of the 21st century the whole row of houses have been made into groups of 2 or 3 roomed flats which sell for around a quarter of a million pounds.
Her Father Richard was a painter decorator and pictures show him in his Masonic outfit. As young children, Alice and Richard may have seen the opening of the first section of the London Underground from nearby Paddington to Farringdon Street by Gladstone in January 1863. Little is known of these two at the moment and a trace of the 1881 census has not disclosed either of them. (Need to obtain their marriage certificate, perhaps dated 1880 to 1888 which means they were perhaps born around 1850~1860.) Emily Maud lived and grew up in West London and it was here that she met her future husband, Sidney Spacey.
