RIDGE FAMILY HISTORY
Richard Ridge was the second son in a family of three sons and three daughters. His father, James Ridge, lived at Windsor, on the Hawkesbury River in New South Wales, where graves of the early members of the Ridge family may be seen in the graveyard of St. Matthew's Church of England, the historic Church designed by Francis Greenaway. The family names of William, Bligh and Richard can be seen on many of the headstones, dating back to 1812. Richard married Miss Margaret McKinnon, of Glenfinnan, Orange, on 31st March, 1881, at St. John's Manse, Orange. After their marriage they lived at Moonagee, Nyngan, where Richard managed the stat ion for Mr. W. T. Richard son. While at Moonagee, Richard and Margaret were visited by their great friends Mr. and Mrs. Patsy Durack, on their journeys to and from Thylungra, in South west Queensland.
Richard Ridge first came to "Tuncoona" in 1889, and took up residence with his family in 1891. Richard and .Margaret reared a family of three daughters and three sons, William (Tuncoona), Bligh (Burrawantie), Dick (Nulty Springs), Elsie (Tun coona), Daisy (Mrs. L. Cow ard, Lissington), Nita (Mrs. W. Davidson, Yarronvale, Charleville). William's two younger sons, William and Robert, now live at "Tuncoona" — his eldest son, John (Warella Plains), is the President of the Darling Shire. Robert's son, Phillip, and Will's son Bill, and-their sisters, are the fourth generation of Ridges to, live on "Tuncoona."
The family has always maintained a great interest in horse racing through the years — Richard was the first President of the North Bourke Amateur Race Club, formed in 1908, his son Bill was President of the Bourke Picnic Racc Club for 25 years, and President of the Enngonia Picnic Race Club for many years. Bill's son, Will, is the present President of the Enngonia Race Club. A silver cup won by Richard Ridge's "Darkie," at Girilambone in 1881, was dis played at the recent Historical Display at Enngonia, together with other cups won through the years by horses raced by members of the family.
