Hi Richard, I don't know if you are aware but there is a small area in Derbyshire (the county in England) which is called Cartledge and it is very much like the description in your other posting. According to the Post Office Address File Albion Street in Derby does still exist. It would appear to be a large shopping street. There isn't a number 16 but this may have been incorporated into a large store. My family history that I have traced so far is all in Manchester but there is a theory that we all originate from the Hamlet of Cartledge and the surrounding area. My information is as follows:-
My father Richard Peter Cartledge born 1928 parents John Arthur Cartledge and Hilda Mary (born Gregory). John Arthur Cartledge born 1893 parents Francis Cartledge and Catherine (born White, previously married to George Dolman and widowed). Francis Cartledge born abt 1867 parents Francis Cartledge and Jane (born Drinkwater). Francis Cartledge born 1836/7 parents Isaac and Mary. This Francis was born in Rochdale and he married Jane Drinkwater at Manchester cathedral in 1857. At this time his father Isaac Cartledge was descibed as a "carter". This occupation could have led him to travel around. Have you any information on Cartledges which could link?
