    Notes 
    • On a visit to England about 1987, my mother's cousin Richard "Ossie" Ridsdale took me to visit Peggy Pratt, a descendant of Walter Ridsdale. The following notes were from our conversations:

      Elizabeth Bulmer was born in Guisborough in the North Riding of Yorkshire. Peggy Pratt told me that her birthday was 27 January and that she died two weeks before her 92nd birthday. Based on the record on her gravestone, I believe that she was born in 1833.

      Ernest Ridsdale (my grandfather) called his grandmother Mary Ann Bulmer (whom I now believe to be Elizabeth's younger sister and was a confusion of his).  Ernest also knew Elizabeth as being called "Betty", but Peggy Pratt had no recollection of this.

      Peggy Pratt has a picture of Elizabeth and William taken in the 1880s or 90s depicts Elizabeth as the very "image of Queen Victoria".

      The Bulmers are known as long lived people. According to her gravestone, Elizabeth died 14 January 1924 at age 90.  She was one of the last burials in the old churchyard in Skelton. Peggy Pratt told me that she thought she was two weeks shy of her 92nd birthday. Given the baptismal record, this may be in error; however, I have other records to search.

      Ernest also told me that the Bulmers were associated with Wilton Castle. My current research shows that the Bulmers were the Lords of Wilton Castle, but I have not yet discovered the link.

      Elizabeth married William Ridsdale. Elizabeth and William Ridsdale probably lived in Guisborough for a few years after their marriage as their first two children were baptised there.

      However, they eventually settled in Skelton.  William was a builder and stonemason, and either he or his father built the house on South Terrace in Skelton which I believe became the family home in the 1860s.

    • I have found no record of his marriage in Guisbro area; however, I have found a record in the IGI for a London marriage of Robt Bulmer and Hannah Wyard on  26 Dec 1831 at St. Marylebone, All Souls (M053911 1737) that would fit.

      Pallot's Marriage Index for England: 1780 - 1837
      Name:    Robt Bulmer
      Spouse:    Hant Wyard
      Marriage Date:    1831
      Parish:    T M'bone All Souls

      According to the 1871 census, Hannah was born in Hepworth, Suffolk, so a marriage in London area might not be out of the question.
