Matthews Fairground Family.
« on: Monday 21 September 09 13:49 BST (UK) »
Hello,

I believe the Matthews im searching for are almost certainly from the Matthews fairground family.I have a book called Fairfield Folk which gives a lot of info on some of the family members,and the family names and locations make it seem beyond a coincidence to me.

Is there anyone with a more detailed knowledge of their family tree who might be able to help me make a connection,

Many thanks,Nel.

Does anyone have any info on James Matthews, Travelling Photographer married to Charlotte Ridley?  Ridley family were circus showmen (John & Selina Ridley)  I have info on Ridley family but very little on Matthews.  I know my Matthews family were not originally fairground people and are not related to the Matthews family in Fairfield Folk. James Matthews (son of James Matthews) originated from London, possibly Lambeth or Bethnal Green and he died in Bristol in 1916.  I am unable to find the mother of James or his birth certificate.  Any help much appreciated
