John Alanson Riddiough, 1780-


Born 1780. Son of John Riddiough and Lucia (nee Pollard)


Fanny Gregory, previously Fayrer, nee Fanny Shearson, 29th September, 1802.

Children: Lucy, 1803; Robert 13th February 1806 (baptised at Aughton St Chapel, Ormskirk on 28th February). His entry read as follows : "Robert RIDDIOUGH son of John RIDDIOUGH (Junior) of Ormskirk and Fanny his wife was born the 13th Feb 1806 and Bapt the 28th."




Excluded from his father's will in 1827 for having publicly shamed his father. His share was left to his daughter Lucy.  One possible explanation for this appears in the quarter sessions records, 15th June 1818. (Order of filiation and maintenance of bastard daughter of John Riddiough, Sadler and Mary Hunter, singlewomman.  John was still married to Fanny at this time.)
