I have a connection to your work on the Partridge's.
I am working on my wife's family, the Whiteman's from Bedfordshire, who ended up in Saskatchewan and Alberta. Many of the Whiteman's married into the Hitchings family of Asquith Saskatchewan, all descendants of John Thomas Hitchings (of Furners Farm, Bisley), and Edith Sarah Partridge (also of Bisley).
Edith Sarah Partridge was the daughter of George and Emma Partridge (ref: 1881 census, Elcombe Furners, Bisley) who are included in your post.
If you would like more information, let me know, and I will be more than happy to share with you.
By the way, we are almost neighbours - we live in Kanata!

Too funny that we are just \"up the road\" so to speak!
Yes, indeed, there is a connection -- George and Thomas PARTRIDGE, brothers, married Emma and Elizabeth BARTLETT, sisters. Long story short, Thomas's daughter, Alice Miriam, emigrated to Canada, married a nephew of my great grandfather Joshua CALLAWAY and settled in Alberta. My great grandfather himself settled in Manitoba.
I would love to share. My email is initials \"asmmas\" and then \"at\" sympatico. Although I haven't worked on this line in some time -- I switched a year ago to The Master Genealogist and have been spending most of my time since *tidying*... -- I do have iinfo on the folks who came to Canada, and would love news of those who remained behind and/or also emigrated.
BTW, another \"cousin\" is on here - Louise, who is a grand daughter of Alice Miriam, and has done a lot of work on the PARTRIDGE line.
Look forward to hearing from you. Oh, and if you're doing UK research, you may want to know about the British Isles Family History Society of Greater Ottawa -
- and come to one of our monthly meetings at LAC (next one is March 14).
