Charles Ridgway b. 1801 Surrey

Frances Ann Tripp baptised 15 Oct 1835 St Sidwell Exeter, Devon to William Upton Tripp (1804-19 Sept 1876) & Elizabeth Leigh (1809-25 Sep 1899 )

Arrivals ??

Vic. Marriage 1856 RIDGWAY Charles (b. ) - TRIPP Frances Ann (b. ) Vic. #2339

That was the second marriage for Charles. I don't have the first one, probably in England.

found James Philip Hobson’s death on findagrave – 18 May 1809 buried Protestant Cemetery Penang Malaysia
Late Accountant and Auditor of this Presidency age 38
Uk Reg for East India Co has
Establisments
Senior Merchant – James Philip Hobson 18 May 1809 – Prince of Wales Island

James Philip Hobson baptised 21 July 1771 St Nicholas Deptford Greenwich – father Jeremiah Hobson
So trying to find a marriage for Ann to a Ridgway.. nothing showing

James & Ann also had daughter Anna Maria Barnard Hobson b 1802 who married 10 June 1826 Tannah Bombay India to Thomas Charles Fraser who also employed by East India Co died onboard ship Caroline in Jan 1831

It rather looks as though he decided to make a fresh start after Julia's death, took on a new name and moved to a new country. Charles Ridgway and Campbell Hobson have to be one and the same person, surely.

So arrival for Charles 1841 - 1856.

Also Frances Ann Tripp by that date.

I can't find the Tripp family in 1841.

I have found an entry in the London Gazette 1849 where he is declared Bankrupt. This may have been the reason for the name change etc, to avoid creditors.
