    • Robey Eldridge, born 1806, was a minister of religion. He was the Curate at Fairford, Gloucester when he married Jane Pittis on 18 Dec 1832 at Titchfield, Hampshire and was later the rector of Desford, Leicestershire. [Note he was only the Assistant Curate at Oddington between 1834 and 1840, so not sure of the accuracy of MBP comment about him being curate of Fairford before that]
