Eliza RIDGE born abt 1838. Am trying to locate her birth, or family. Family legend has it that her father managed an estate in Berkshire. I assume that she came from Longworth, as her youngest son was named Longworth Ridge YELVERTON. Eliza came to Wellington, NZ in 1855, married Augustus YELVERTON and never returned to UK.
The closest I've come to finding her is the 1841 Census which appears to show her mother as an Ag Lab at Longworth Lodge. I suspect she may have been orphaned. If anyone can help with looking up a Parish record, or birth reg, or anything else, I would be most grateful. [P.S. I live in NZ] Thanks, Deb
