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
  5. Herbert Lindsey Bridle born 1888
  6. Winifred Helena Bridle born 1890
  7. Robert Thomas Bridle born 1892
  8. Maurice Henry Bridle born 1896 (Died 1896, aged 0.)
In 1881, living at 21, Hargwyne Street, Lambeth, were Edwin S Bridle (25), Lucy Bridle (27) with Emma S Bridle (0). Edwin was a carpenter, as was Lucy's father.

In 1891, they were living in Arlingford Road, Brixton, where the family had grown to include: Edwin S Bridle (35) Carpenter from Rockbeare, Devon; Lucy Bridle (37); Emma S Bridle (10); Eunice L Bridle (6); Ernest E Bridle (4); Herbert L Bridle (2); Winifred H Bridle (0) along with Emily Richardson Lodger (28) Cook and Matilda Richardson Lodger (23) General servant.

By 1901, they had moved to 52, Pentney Road, Clapham. Here we find Edwin Symons Bridle (45) Carpenter & joiner; Lucy Bridle (47); Evangeline Fanny Bridle (18) Pupil teacher; Ernest Edwin Bridle (15) Apprentice fancy saporie; Herbert Lindsey Bridle (12); Winifred Helena Bridle (10) and Robert Thomas Bridle (8). Eunice Lucy isn't listed, I think by omission: she is alive and does not appear to be staying elsewhere. 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.

In 1911, Edwin Bridle (55) Widower, was living at 73 Leverson St, Streatham, in the household of Fanny Lindsey (52) his late wife's younger sister.

Edwin S Bridle died, in Wandsworth, in 1927, aged 71.
