Ridler Edward Orpin

Postby SRD » Thu May 21, 2020 10:59 am

I've got an interesting conundrum that I can't get my head round (or find the answers to).
FamilySearch has a baptism for Ridler Edward Orpin 18 Jun 1786, St Nicholas, Gloucester. Parents John & Anne.
I have military records for an Edward Orpin, born 1787, Gloucester between 1812 - 1820
I have a marriage 7 October 1822 to Eleanor (Ellen) Cook in St Nicholas, Gloucester. Where he is described as Widower.
I have all I need to know about various children born to Edward & Ellen.
Edward was buried 17 April 1840 in Churchdown, Gloucestershire.

The only record I can find of a previous marriage is in a transcript of a Parish Register index which is to Elizabeth Newbury where he is named Edw' Ridler of Mary@ Grace, City of Glos' but that is dated 24th Feb 1794, when Edward was only 8.

Can anyone find a more suitable marriage for Ridler Edward?
Can anyone suggest who it was that was actually married in 1794?

Thanks Jimmy, that disposes of the 1794 marriage, how about the first marriage for Ridler Edward? It must be limited as his military records are acceptance & discharge from the Royal Hospital at Chelsea and I think you have to be single to live there. So the window has to be somewhere between 1802 - 1812 or between 1820 - 1822. I've not been able to find a suitable female death to account for his widowerhood, maybe he served abroad and was married and widowed there. I'll have a delve into the military side.
