Ancestry.

Multiple spellings  of the name

Use Samuel Orridge, death 1858  Leicester.
Then using the filter by category on the left hand side choose Court, land wills and Financial. 
Then choose wills. It is the index only but tells you his death date and executors of his will.

I don't know the address to apply for the actual will, but I'm sure somebody on here can tell you that.

Nathanial Orring & Sarah

Samuel bap 2 August 1778 Sheepshed
Joseph bap 9 March 1783       ditto
Ruth bap 4 July 1785

Samuel being the one who left the will, his nephew Joseph the brickmaker  son of his brother Joseph married Sarah and possibly the one who died 1831 who had been a soldier.
Sister Ruth married William Fearn 1810 in Derbyshire, her son the other nephew Edwin Fern mentioned as executor to Samuel.

Nathaniel Orring married Sarah Whittle 31 December 1765 Sheepshed, so there are more children
somewhere to be found.

Three more children of Nathanial and Sarah  all at Sheepshed
Updated 4 more children

William Oringe bap 22 March 1767
Nath'l Oringe bap 10 Feb 1769
Sarah Orring bap 14 November 1772
Edward Orringe bap 24 Feb 1775

There is also an apprentice record for a Nath'l Orange to Robert Bakewell a Baker 6 May 1755 in Belton, in case that is relevant, might be the father of the children.

Seems this was a family given to serving in the Army
Nathanial Orange discharged 31 May 1807 born Leicester 1768 age 39
Coldstream Regiment of Foot.
