The London Chidley family were involved in
concertina manufacturing by the Wheatstone Company from its start around 1850 until the
1970s. They were supposedly related to the
Wheatstones (Sir Charles and his brother William) who originated from Gloucester.
The main Chidley who appears is Rock,
chr.8 May 1825,St. Botolph Without Aldgate, London, son of John and Mary Hannah (nee Ward) who married 28 Jul 1816 Old Church, Saint Pancras according to the IGI. There
are other children. Is anybody here familiar with this branch?
I'd like to establish any Wheatstone connection, but also later genealogy. I can provide lots of information on concertinas!
