First Black Lawyer, Delaware County, PA
The late William Henry Ridley, Esquire - Delaware County's first African American attorney, whose office once stood at 1707 West Third Street in Chester - was a true pioneer. There are few alive today, who remember this remarkable man. But like any trailblazer, the legacy he left cut a path through the nearly impenetrable forest of the obstacles of his time, for other men and women of color to follow. The story of the man often called, "Lawyer Ridley," begins with his parents - Cornelius Ridley and Martha Jane Parham - former slaves on neighboring plantations in Southampton County, Virginia. Separately, they escaped during the Civil War, and later reunited here in Media, where they were taken in by Isaac and Elizabeth Smedly Yarnall - local Quakers who lived on Providence Road. As they began to find work and establish themselves here, they later moved to the little house on the corner of Front Street and Providence Road, which is now known as the "Minshall House." It was there, on June 12, 1867, that William Henry Ridley born. Cornelius and Martha Jane Ridley became respected members of the community and obtained gainful employment. As deeply spiritual people, they were among the founders of Campbell A.M.E. Church, at the corner of Third and Olive Streets. Martha Jane took in laundry and did whitewashing on houses. Cornelius drove a delivery wagon for Hawley & Snowden's Hardware Store on State Street in Media. They worked hard and saved their money. And in 1872, they bought a small house which formerly stood at 308 North Olive Street. The home remained in the family for over a century, before it was eventually torn down. William was sickly as a child, which caused a delay in his starting school. He was quite a daydreamer, and when he was little, his mother would tie a rope to his belt, so he wouldn't wander off. He later attended Media Public High School, and graduated with honors on June 9, 1887 - a significant achievement for anyone in those days, but especially for a person of color. Shortly after graduation, he began to prepare for a career in law, by studying in the office of Louis H. Richards - a prominent local attorney at the time. Four years later, on March 23, 1891, after passing the bar examination, he was admitted to the Delaware County Bar, and became "Esquire." To further his knowledge of the law, Ridley worked in the Prothonotary and Recorder of Deeds offices in the Delaware County Court House. He also took courses at the University of Pennsylvania Law School. However, Ridley's legal career - as well as his life - were nearly cut short when he narrowly escaped being assassinated in Chester in September of 1889. As it was reported in the Chester Times, Ridley and a couple of other young law students were in Chester passing out circulars for their candidate - John B. Robinson - who was running against Jesse Baker in a hotly contested state election. As they were leaving the Colonnade Hotel about 1 o'clock in the morning, they were attacked by members of the Hanley Hose Company, who were supporters of the rival candidate. A wild exchange of gunfire erupted with Ridley leaping onto a passing carriage driven by his friends, with bullets whizzing after them as they raced up Edgmont Avenue. Ridley had been shot in the leg, the horse in two places, and the carriage had taken five bullets. Ridley was soon brought to trial on the charge of attempted murder. But after reliable witnesses - and nearly half of the Bar Association - testified that Ridley had in fact acted in self-defense, Capt. Isaac Johnson - the presiding judge - let the young law student off with a $25 fine and a fatherly reprimand. Ridley's life was full of drama. In the early 1920's, Ridley was at his Olive Street home in Media, when the Ku Klux Klan showed up in his backyard, fully dressed in white hoods and robes. They were reportedly looking for an American Indian who had been seen in the vicinity. Ridley's son-in-law had just come in from work, and had been mistaken for the man the Klan was looking for. "Lawyer" Ridley, walked outside - unarmed this time - and spoke with the mob. He apparently knew many of them, despite their white hoods. Taken as a man of his word, the Klansmen finally accepted his explanation and left. They then marched up Olive Street to Sandy Bank hill, where they held a cross-burning ceremony. William H. Ridley, Esq., had a distinguished career as a practicing attorney that spanned an incredible 54 years. Widely respected, his clients were both black and white, prosperous and poor. He maintained law offices in Chester and West Chester, and practiced out of his home in Media as well. Ridley served in the army during the Spanish American War and World War I. When the United States first recognized the country of Liberia, William was a leading candidate for first Ambassador. However, he would often turn down prestigious appointments which would take him far awa
