This is a letter I received from my uncle Gerald Moggridge. He and I have been tracing our family tree for a number of years and he showed interest in the details regarding Charles and Mary Mogridge which I had copied to him. He has checked through his records and has come up with some more information which may be of use to you.


On consulting my files again I came across the following extract dated 1726 from "The Worshipful Company of Cordwainers Apprentices Book":


Charles Moggridge Son of Henry Moggridge of Whitechapple in the county of Middlesex, Cordwainer, Bound to Anthony Clapham, Citizen and Cordwainer of London, dated the seventh day of September 1726....."

This ís a very revealing document, because in one go it confirms

a) that Charles was the son of Henry Moggridge,

b) that Henry himself was a shoemaker, and

c) that Charles was born in 1711 ( Apprentices usually began at age 15; 1726 minus 15 = 1711!).

So we can now trace the life of Charles as follows:

1711 Charles, born to Henry & Frances Moggridge. Baptised 19 August, St Martin in the Field, Westminster (IGI)

1712 Family moved from Westminster across London to George Yard, Whitchapel, just outside the Tower of london.

1716 Charles is joined by sisters Elizabeth (25 Dec 1716) and Martha (1718) both baptised in Stepney St Mary Whitchapel Church.

1733 Charles marries Mary Randall at Stepney St Mary Whitechapel on 24 Aug 1732.

1735 Mary, daughter of Charles & Mary Moggridge, baptised at Stepney St George's-in-the-East, 6 Jun 1735. Charles described as a clogmaker of Old Gravel Yard.

From here the trail runs cold
