In addition to the IGI items you quote regarding the various "Revd Anthony Mogridges" of Worcestershire, you may like to know that there is a great deal more detail about them ( and their families) elsewhere - notably in three publications:


This contains a reference to a chapel at Kenswick, Worcs, where an ' Anthony Moggridge ' was the incumbent in 1675 ( page 441 ). Page 296 of the same volume refers to a ' Revd. Anthony Mogridge ' as being master of the grammer school at Martley, Worcs. from 1672 to 1709, and to whom is attributed ' some curious writings, partly in cryptograph ' about a controversy between him and his parishioners as to who was responsible for repairing the school house ! ( Typical Mog (g) ridge - always arguing ! )


This publication has a number of references to the various Mogridge clerics who were at Oxford, including the Revd Anthony '...... vicar of Himbleton from 1746 until his death in 1766, aged 90 '. There are also refs. to his sons Anthony and John, and his brother Samuel.

His son John Mogridge is shown getting his martic. in 1780 ( aged 33 ), B.A. and M.A. 1787, vicar of Pershore, Worcs 1784 and of Avenbury, Hereford , 1783 until his death in 1796.

In turn, John's son William Henry Mogridge is listed as B.A, M.A, Jesus College 1821/22 and Minister of Balham Chapel, ' Surrey ' (?) 1828 until his death in 1847.


There are more details of William Henry in an 1804 issue of this publication. He had a sister Lydia and a sister Clorinda.

Other Mog (g ) ridge Clerics.

In addition to the Oxford clerics, my other researches have shown several groups of Mog (g) ridge vicars graduating from Cambridge ( the ' Weston Moggridges ', the ' Traherne Moggridges ' the ' ' Fullelove Mogridges ' and the ' Twells Mogridge ' ) in the period 1824 - 1890.

Finally, and also at Cambridge, my own branch of the family has the Rev. William Moggridge, born North Petherton 1683. After matric. at Blundells in 1700 he was admitted to Sidney College, Cambridge in June 1700. BA, MA, 1704-7. Vicar of Minehead from 1709 and, in parallel, Rector of Porlock from 1734 until his death in 1763.
