Hi
This looks like your family on the 1871 census, Radwinter is a sub district of Saffron Waldon

David Ridgewell 9  Radwinter, Essex, England    Radwinter  Essex   
James Ridgewell 62  Radwinter, Essex, England Head  Radwinter  Essex   
Julia Ridgewell 56  Radwinter, Essex, England Wife  Radwinter  Essex   
Walter Ridgewell 15  Radwinter, Essex, England    Radwinter  Essex 

Source information:    RG10/1710
Registration district:    Saffron Walden 
Sub-registration district:    Radwinter 
ED, institution, or vessel:    5 
Folio:    59 
Page:    6 
Household schedule number:    29

the address looks like Water Lane

David Ridgewell is listed as an ag lab (agricultural labourer)

I think this is his birth details
RIDGEWELL, David William 1861 June Saffron Walden Essex  Vol 4a Page 385
with these details you would be able to obtain his birth certificate.


Hope this is of help.

Thank you. and one more Question
« Reply #5 on: Sunday 26 September 04 14:10 BST (UK) »
 :)Thank you so much to Sue for the information you sent me. In the 1871 census there living in Julia and James Ridgewell household was a Walter and David Ridgewell, Walter was about 15 and David who is my Great Grandfather  than in the 1881 Walter is not listed and i can not fine anything on him, but there is a Isabella Ridgewell listed as Granddaughter age 13 and I can not fine info on her since than . This whole family is one big mistery. I got info on my Grandfather and his wife Elizabeth but then there is a mistory on that because a aunt Billie said that there oldest son was Cliton Royal and he was born in 1998 my Grandfather was born in 1891 but is not mention in the 1900 or 1910 census for there house in Duluth MN.  ??? Thanks for any help
