Charles Hucklebridge

contributed by Christene A. Hucklebridge

Charles and Elizabeth Hucklebridge came to the USA in 1836. They settled in Hilyard Township Macoupin Co IL. In 1836, his wife and seven children came to USA along with other families, all relatives, the Hooks, Howertons, Churchs, and Eddingtons. They came by sailboat, being afraid of the steamboat. The land on which they settled was deeded to Charles Hucklebridge in 1841 and signed by President of United States. "Martin Van Buren" This land has been since 1841, and still is in the Hucklebridge name. (as of 1969) Charles and Elizabeth gave land for a Church and a cemetery, where they are both buried, also 7 of their 8 children. One child was born after they came to USA. This info furnished me by GD Hucklebridge, 16 Guildhouse St., London, SWI England. (1969)
