I've traced my ancestors back to an Anne Aldridge born in the Reading area in Berkshire. I think she was born in Hurst in 1796, daughter of Gregory Aldridge & Anna Maria Adams. She's the only Anne Aldridge I've been able to find of about the right age to fit the facts I'm sure of. Gregory & Anna were married in Hurst in 1795. He had 2 other children by Anna: Sarah & Thomas. I think Anna died giving birth to Thomas and Gregory remarried to Mary ? and had 8 more children: Eliza, Mary Ann, John (born in Hurst in 1804), Maria Elizabeth, William Gregory, Richard (born in Hurst in 1809), Catharine & Susanna. I don't know if any of these names tie up when any of your ancestors. If they do e-mail me and we can swop info.
