Terence Lucy Greenidge

Terence Lucy Greenidge

Terence Lucy Greenidge (14 January 1902 18 December 1970) was an English author and actor. He was a first generation Barbadian born in England and second son of Abel Hendy Jones Greenidge (who came up to study and remained at Oxford as an academic) and his wife Edith Elizabeth, the youngest daughter of William Lucy, at that time the sole owner of Lucy Ironworks, previously known as the Eagle Ironworks, in Walton Well Road, Jericho, Oxford. The Greenidge family trace their ancestry in Barbados to John of Greenwich who left London on 2 May 1635 on the ship Alexander. Within one generation the etymon, meaning Green Port or Trading Place of the surname had assumed the distinctly West Indian orthographic format of Greenidge, whilst maintaining a very similar phenomic identity. Greenidge was a friend of Evelyn Waugh, whom he met at Oxford, and collaborated with him in producing the Scarlet Woman: An Ecclesiastical Melodrama. Evelyn Waugh in Letters (editor by Charles E. Linck) was published posthumously in 1994, which details many of Greenidge's recollections of Evelyn Waugh.
