      ************************************************
      Charlotte Bolstridge and her four children Caleb, William, Susan and John arrived in New York on the 25 Apr 1850 travelling on the Hampshire from Liverpool. It appears that William her Husband had preceded her. All four Children were Baptised at Bedworth on the 10 Feb 1850 in preparation for the Journey

      Both William and Charlottes family were Ribbon Weavers and there was great distress in the trade at that time due to the cheap imports of factory produced ribbons in the 1840's
      Pigot and Company's Directory for 1841 recorded that, at Bedworth: Three collieries, opened in the vicinity, are productive of some advantage to the inhabitants, who, previously to the depressed state of the ribbon trade, were chiefly employed in that branch of manufacture.
