Diary of Eliza (Perley) Eldridge - 1879

Transcribed by Roy Eldridge.
Transcriber's Note:

Eliza Perley was born May 17, 1855 in Maugerville, NB. Her father, Thomas Horsfield Perley, lived in Maugerville.  He was a farmer and owned a lumbering business.

In 1879, she tells how she was living in Maugerville and moved to Pennfield, New Brunswick at the age of 24 to teach school. She may have taught school in Pennfield or Beaver Harbour prior to 1879.

In February, 1881, she married James Martin Eldridge of Beaver Harbour, New Brunswick. (Martin is mentioned in the diary as Mart, the son of Jim Eldridge.) They lived for a while with Martin's parents.  She lived until December 4, 1945 and is buried at Beaver Harbour.  After the accidental death of Mart in 1918, she resided first with son Clare, and later with daughter, Pearl Barry. 

A birthday announcement in the Fredericton Daily Gleaner on May 18, 1939 says that she first taught in Pennfield when she was 19, which would have been in 1874 - 1875.  The early part of the diary shows letters between her and Mart, so she had met him before this diary was written.  She did have a great-uncle in St. George.

84th birthday notice


Her brothers were Charles, Medley and Will. Her sisters were Helen, Henrietta (Net), Hannah Isabel (Bell), and Bertha.

The diary reflects day to day life in an era without radio, television and motor cars. The diary was handwritten, of course, and in many cases I have had to guess at a word or leave it blank. I have tried to be faithful to spelling and capitalization.
