Charles Aldridge

Apprenticed to his uncle Edward Aldridge in 1758. He enters his first mark in partnership with Henry Green in 1775. The London Gazette (Issue 12782) published on the 29th August 1786, reports that the partnership of Charles Aldridge and Henry Green of St Martin Le Grand was to be dissolved by mutual consent on 2nd September 1786. Henry’s home address was given as St Martin Le Grand, and Charles’s as the Corner of Falcon Street, Aldersgate Street, from where the two businesses would now be run separately.

Charles Aldridge, who was probably acting mainly as a retailer, was one of the deputations who presented the petition of the buckle makers to the King in 1792 (the Petition to the Prince of Wales held in the Royal Archives at Windsor – RA GEO Adm 16/129. The London petitions to various members of the royal household were printed as a contemporary pamphlet and have been digitised to computer by Gale in their 18th century books collection, available to academic institutions. The printed version differs from the original in some parts).

The London Gazette (Issue 13634) published on the 22nd March 1794, reports that the partnership of Charles Aldridge and Elizabeth Andrews, Jewellers, Goldsmiths and Cutlers of Cornhill London was dissolved by mutual consent on 1st January 1793. This statement was signed by the two partners on the 21st March 1794 and requested that creditors should send demands to Elizabeth Andrews. Perhaps Charles had retired.

The will, proved in London Consistory Court, October 1815 of Charles Aldridge, Goldsmith of Balls Pond, St Mary, Islington ref XO20/358 folio 518, may be his.
