Staddon, Gerald

Gerald Staddon

Gerald Staddon (Stadden/Staddan) was born in June of 1943 in Upper Agbrigg (Kirkburton), Yorkshire, England, UK to Francis Frank Stadden and Edith May Stadden (née Smith).

Staddon was raised on a smallholding (land, under 50 acres, sold/let for cultivation) run by his parents in Linfit Lane, Kirkburton. He attended Kirkburton Junior and Secondary Modern Schools.  

Staddon's early working days weren't in show business, far from it, he spent time on a mill and a furniture factory. He joined Bolum & Shaw then went on to the Circus, a job he held for 3 ½ weeks (long hours and a lot of labor), he went to work for a brick firm in Beford then returned to Bolum & Shaw. From 1965-1979 he worked for Martin and Sons Brookfield Mills in Kirkburton (fabric). His boss at the mills in Kirkburton was good with Staddon and let him go for acting gigs when they came up. He also learned to repair watches and clocks which he still does in between acting work.

He is married to actress Josephine Staddon, he met her in Bristol, they live in Watford with their son Sean.

NOTE: Gerald Staddon is not deceased! His cousin confirmed this (Sept 2017) with me. :) Yay!
