Looking for my great grandparents
I am firstly trying to solve a mystery about my grandfather's parents. My grandfather was born in Bridgwater, Somerset, in 1906. His name was Stanley William Burridge. Our family was told he was adopted at about the age of 3 or 4 by two "aunts", Beatrice and Bess Burridge, so this would have been around 1909/1910. We are not sure what happened to Stanley's parents. I have found out that a Stanley William Burridge, born in 1906 in Bridgwater, was born to a William Stanley and Susan Burridge of Bridgwater, but I am not sure if this is the correct Burridge. There seemed to be alot of William Burridge's at this time. I know that Stanley also had a brother called Samuel Burridge. I also know that William Stanley Burridge had some premises in Bridgwater high street and traded as a gamekeeper/fish merchant.
A member of our family has done research and said that a lot of the Burridge family originally came from Crediton, Devon, and some of them possibly moved to Bridgwater, and some went to Sydney, Austraila and to Nova Scotia.
If anyone has any further information about the Burridge family in Bridgwater, Somerset or Crediton, Devon, around the late 1800's or early 1900's, I will be very interested to hear from them.
