View Full Version : Bridges Family Portsea,Portsmouth.
I am trying to find any info on my ancestors who lived in portsea from 1843 onwards.The father James Bridges(b.1808-Sheerness,Kent)I can find but some of the children are being very alusive.Their names are Emmeline.K.Bridges (b.1838-Whitstable,Kent),Robert Norman Bridges(b.1841-Poplar,London) and William Daniel (b.1843-Portsea Portsmouth).I have looked on all censuses but found nothing.Does anyone know of these names?James Bridges' wife was named Lucy Norman(b.1814-Chatham,Kent).

If Charles Bridges was a seaman, I wonder if the other missing boys went to sea. - On the 1861 William is a Seaman.
