Dear Ms Sergovich
My analysis of the male Chidleys listed in the 1881 Census (which I could send you if you let me have your email address and if you can receive documents in Word format) suggests that the surname is a single family name, ie one that originated once in one place, in this case probably in Shropshire. So there may be some connection between 'your' Chidleys and 'mine', but it could be back in the medieval period. I have no information about Thomas Chidley other than his marriage and the birth/christening of his son. At his son's second marriage in 1868, Thomas was described as a 'gentleman' but my Chidleys had a habit of misrepresenting their occupations on marriage certificates to make themselves seem grander than they actually were. I assume that Thomas had died before 1841, because his wife Ann (who had been born in Worcestershire) was then living with her son.
