    I know a lot about Eliza Victoria Wallbridge, her husband is Alfred Goodwin. She was born in 1898 in Weymouth and was travelling with the fair as a midget when she met Alfred. He was a fairground worker with Anderson and rowlands fair. If anyone is interested in her ancestry, I have details for all members of her family and some ancestors. Her grandmother was from India and married Charles Wallbridge, who was India during the war, he was 24 and she was 15 or younger. Her great grandfather was my GGG uncle.
