      Subject: [RIDSDALE] RIDSDALE gravestones in Tenby, Wales

      I wonder if anyone has these people in their family . Last week I was searching the cemetery in Tenby, Pembrokeshire, Wales (only family tree nuts do this!!!) and found two recently refurbished gravestones with these inscriptions.

      EDWARD AURELIAN RIDSDALE GBE
      Late of Rottingdean, Sussex and of Waterwynch, Tenby
      Born at Peckham 23 February 1864
      Died at Waterwynch 6 September 1923
      and
      SUSAN STIRLING [RIDSDALE]
      his wife
      Daur of John Ritchie Findlay of Abertour
      Born at Edinburgh 12 August 1870
      Died at Begelly [Pembrokeshire] 9 June 1935

      EDWARD ERRINGTON FINDLAY RIDSDALE
      Of Waterwynch, Tenby
      Born  at Ifleld, Sussex 31 July 1902
      Died at Waterwynch, Tenby 5 May 1932

      If these are of interest to anyone I can send digital images.

      Best wishes,
      Ted White

      Hello John,
      I have attached the three images of the RIDSDALE gravestones which I took last week in Tenby Cemetery. I have just been "googling' the name of the father, Edward Aurelian RIDSDALE, and found out some fascinating details. He was Sir Edward, an Archdeacon of Colchester, Conservative MP for Brighton and an investor in the stock market. I found him and his wife, Susan, in the 1901 census RG13/949 f125 in The Rectory, Ifield, Sussex just before their son Edward was born.

      Waterwynch, where they died, is a very prestigious dwelling by the sea in rural Pembrokeshire - just outside of Tenby (where my wife was born). I wonder why they moved there from England? It is now a private hotel with its own beach.
      Best wishes,
      Ted White, Burlington, Ontario, Canada
