    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.

    Thanks for the info Ro.wallbridge. Please could you give us more details on the little couple. Would like to know where they fit in with my husband, Lawrence Walbridge ancestors. His father was a George Walbridge. Also did the dwarfism gene come out in any other of your relatives. Many thanks. Dianne Walbridge

    @dianne if you see this message we are also decendents of the late Charles and Jessie Walbridge. As far as we are aware the dwafism gene didn't carry on. Would love to know where you fit on the family tree. Leslie Walbridge was my partners great grandfather.
