Edwin Symons Bridle, son of Thomas Parsons Bridle and his second wife, Sarah Symons and elder brother of Eva Bridle and Emma Bridle, married Lucy Lindsey, daughter of James Lindsey and Emma Stile, in 1880, in the London Borough of Lambeth. This was despite both being from Devon: Edwin from Rockbeare and Lucy, born in 1853, in the neighbouring village of Aylesbeare

Edwin and Lucy had eight children, all born in Lambeth:
  1. Emma Sarah Bridle born 1881
  2. Evangeline Fanny Bridle born 21 Jan 1883
  3. Eunice Lucy Bridle born 18 Apr 1884
  4. Ernest Edwin Bridle born 15 May 1886

Emma Sarah Bridle (20) was employed as a "Useful maid domestic" to three spinsters at 61, Philbeach Gardens, Kensington

Lucy Bridle died in 1905, aged 51, in Hackney.

Charles Trevail and Mary Flemming

St Margaret, Westminster

Charles Trevail, son of Joseph Trevail and Jane Rundle, in 1871, was living with his brother, Joseph Rundle Trevail, in Westminster. Then, in the 1st quarter of 1874, Charles married Mary Fleming at St Margaret's, Westminster

On the 1881 census, Mary claims to be from Barnstaple, Devon, born around 1855. In 1891, she says she's from London; in 1901, Westminster and 1911, London City. One would normally trust the earliest records more, but it transpires her father, Henry Fleming, a tailor, was from Barnstaple, while her mother, Edith was from Middlesex, City (i.e. London) - there is a marriage of a Henry Fleming to Edith Arding, in Kensington, in 1842 that may refer. The 1871 census where Mary (17) is living with her parents at Artillery Terrace, St Margaret, Westminster, says she was born in Soho, Middlesex.

Charles and Mary had five children, all born in Lambeth:
  1. Charles Frederick Trevail born 1874
  2. Herbert Fleming Trevail born 1877 
  3. Edwin Fleming Trevail born 1880
  4. Lily Mary Trevail born 1885
  5. Daisy Fleming Trevail in 1893
In 1881, Charles Trevail (29) Engine Fitter, was living at 13, Meadow Terrace, Lambeth - at that time Charles' brother, Joseph, lived at 6, Meadow Terrace - with Mary (26), Charles F (6), Herbert F (4) and Edward (sic) F (0).

By 1891, they had moved to Osborne Terrace, Lambeth. With Charles (38) Engine Fitter, are Mary (36) Pattern Maker, Charles F (16), Herbert F (14) Messenger, Edwin F (10) Scholar and Lily M (5).

And in 1901, at 195, South Lambeth Road, Lambeth, we find Charles Trevail (48) Engine Fitter, Mary (46), Edwin (20) Carpenter, Lily (15) and Daisy (7). 

Bn 1911, Charles Trevail (59) Engineer, Mary (57), Frederick (37) widower (he married Charlotte Ada Land in Camberwell, in 1898), Daisy (17) and Arthur Trevail (11) Grandson, have moved to 10 Elgin Road, Wallington, Surrey.

Mary Trevail died on 28 July 1938, aged 85, in Surrey. The probate record says Mary Trevail of 62 Milton Road, Wallington, Surrey (wife of Charles Trevail) died at Netherne Hospital (formerly The Surrey County Asylum or Netherne Asylum: a psychiatric hospital), Coulsdon, Surrey, leaving effects of £300 to Charles Trevail of no occupation and Lord Harold Graves, builder. (Lord was a given name, not a title - he had married Daisy Fleming Trevail in 1917.)

In 1939, Charles Trevail, Refridgerating Engineer Retired, was living with his daughter, Lily M Townsend (she had married William Dring Townsend in Croydon, in 1904) at 23 Dalmeny Road, Sutton, Surrey. 

Charles Trevail died, in Surrey, in 1946, aged 94.

Joseph Rundle Trevail and Gertrude Augusta Shepherd ... and two intriguing weddings with Eliza Thursby

Lambeth Palace, London SE1.

Joseph Rundle Trevail, son of Joseph Trevail and Jane Rundle, married Gertrude Augusta Shepherd (bap. 25 Apr 1845), illegitimate daughter of Eliza Shepherd, in the first quarter of 1871 at St. George Hanover Square, London, although that may refer to the district, rather than the church itself. Gertrude, as was her mother, was a Honiton lace maker, from Colaton Raleigh in East Devon.

At the time of the 1871 census, Joseph Trevail (24) Engineer Fitter, was living in Denbigh Street, Westminster with wife Gertrude (25), brother Charles (20) Engineer Fitter, sisters Amy* (16) and Jane (12), as well as a visitor, Selina Rundle (20). (* Joseph didn't have a sister called Amy. Kate, maybe?)

Joseph and Gertrude had five children:

  1. Charley Thomas Trevail born 1871 (died 1871, aged 0) in Devon
  2. Charley Joseph Walter Radford Trevail born 1872 in St Thomas, Devon
  3. Annie Gertrude Trevail born 1875 in St. George Hanover Square
  4. Kate Olivia Trevail born 1880 in Lambeth
  5. Gertrude Augusta Trevail born 1884 (died 1885, age 0)
Mother's maiden name, in all cases, spelled Sheppard. 

In 1881, the family living at 6, Meadow Terrace, Lambeth, London, comprised: Joseph R Trevail (34) Engine fitter, Gertrude A (36), Charles J W R (8), Anne G (6), Kate O (0) and Eliza Sheppard (69) 'Relative' (Gertrude's mother).

Then in the third quarter of 1890, Joseph Rundle Trevail married Eliza Thursby, in Lambeth. The marriage took place at the church of St Mary, Lambeth. Then, immediately, on 26 Sep 1890, Joseph R Trevail and Eliza Trevail embarked on the RMS Ormuz, bound for Victoria, Australia, where they arrived in Nov.

Which would all be absolutely fine and dandy, except ...

In 1891, Gertrude Trevail (46) wife, married, mender of fine lace, is alive and well, still living at the family home in Meadow Terrace, Lambeth, with daughters Annie G (16) and Kate O (10), as well as her mother, Eliza Shepperd (78). 

By 1901, Gertrude Trevail (55) Married, Honiton lace manufacturer, was living at 153, Kennington Road, Lambeth, with daughter Kate (20).

Meanwhile, Joseph Rundle Trevail, Engineer, is on the Australia Electoral Rolls in 1903, in Market Street, New South Wales, Australia. 

Gertrude Trevail died, aged 58, in the 4th quarter of 1910, in Epsom, Surrey.

Mr J R & Mrs Trevail then departed from London, on 17 Nov 1910, on the RMS China, this time bound for Sydney, via Freemantle, Adelaide and Melbourne, arriving in Fremantle, Western Australia on 20 Dec 1910. 

Then, in 1911, Joseph R Trevail married Eliza Thursby in Canterbury, New South Wales, Australia. Again. This time, non-bigamously! (I checked the National Archives for a divorce, though it would be very unlikely for ordinary people at that time, and of course there wasn't one.) Bigamy is a prison offence in both the UK and Australia, although the sentence length is lower in the latter. 

On 27 Feb 1921, J R and Mrs Trevail left Sydney for Wellington, New Zealand, on the SS Marama, as tourists. Joseph's sister Mary Ann had just died and his sister Ellen was still in New Zealand. Maybe they went to visit family?

Joseph R Trevail died on 20 Jan 1934, aged 86. The last will and testament of Joseph Rundle Trevail of 52 Market Street, Randwick, in the state of New South Wales, Gentleman, left the balance of his estate to his dear wife Eliza, after various other bequests and clues. Among beneficiaries were a grandson, Arthur Waymark (his daughter, Annie Gertrude Trevail had married Louis Charles Waymark in Lambeth in 1898); his sister Olivia Caldwell (Olivia Trevail had married Thomas William Colwill in 1886 in St George, Hanover Square); her daughter was Elsie Bates; a niece, Florence Wright; other bequests go to a John Edwards and to granddaughters, Amy Edwards and Edith Anderson (née Edwards) (daughter Kate Olivia Trevail had married Frank William Edwards in 1903). His estate was valued at £3,757 in 1934, worth £275,819 today.
