My ancestors were also Ridd's and I am looking for more info. My great grandfather, Charles Henry Ridd was born 1878 to I believe George and Mary Grace. He married a Florence Parker. They emigrated to Canada in the early 1900's. George Ridd was born in 1836 to a Thomas and Dorothy. He married Mary Grace Richards in 1870 and they also had children named Gertrude, William and Mary. Thomas Ridd was born in 1786 and was married to a Dorothy born 1801. They also had Charles, James, William and Mary. I don't know if any of these Ridd's are connected to yours. The dates I have are quite vague and would really like to narrow this down. As usual with anything Ridd, I also have been told that Lorna Doone is part of our heritage.
Thanks for any help that you can give.
