Please forgive my apparent stupidity, but is it Coll-er-ridge, Cole-ridge or something else because I don't have a clue.

Thank you, as I thought!

Coal ridge.

And I should know. He was an ancestor of mine I'll have you know! Dad and DB have Coleridge as one of their middle names hmm

Oh! Now I am all confused again!

Orm's coal ridge & Mrs B's COH- l'-ridge sound the same, don't they?

MrsBadger Tue 25-Aug-09 13:03:22

I voice the L, jsut sligthtly

Having said that I never met the guy in person. He may well have pronounced his name Blenkinsop for all I know grin

I say it the same as MrsBadger does.

It would depend what he was on at the time, Orm. grin
