Hilda Ridgeway, third daughter of William Ridgeway and Florence Louise Finnimore married Louis Joseph Holway on 1 Jul 1933. 

From the Western Times 7 July 1933:

UPLOWMAN AND UFFCULM FAMILIES UNITED


The marriage was solemnised quietly at St Peter's Church, Uplowman, on Saturday, of Miss Hilda Ridgway, third daughter of Mr and Mrs William Ridgway of Neddicott, Uplowman, and Mr Louis Joseph Holway, third son of Mrs and the late Mr Thomas Holway of the Post Office, Cradock, Uffculme. The Rector (Rev. E J Sandford) officiated. The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a pretty dress of lido blue silk crepe, the panelled skirt reaching to the ankles and the roll collar, white silk in one half and brick in the other, finished at the point with diamonds of white and brick, and the belt was fastened with a small paste brooch. She wore a large white felt hat and carried a prayer book in place of a bouquet. There was no bridesmaid. Mr Edgar Holway carried out the duties of best man. A reception was held at Nedicott, and the happy couple left for their new home at Bridge Street, Uffculme.
In 1939, Louis and Hilda Holway were living in Bridge Street, Uffculme, with daughter Margaret. Hilda Holway died in 1953, aged 42.
