Bridgerton has been nothing short of a sensation for Netflix, even breaking the viewership record previously held by The Witcher.
Viewers have been raving over the various families that appear over the course of the eight-episode series.
Some families have their own tradition as well. The children in the Bridgerton family are named in Alphabetical order (Starting from A for the oldest).
This also explains why Simon and Daphne had to pick a name starting with ‘A’ at the end of Bridgerton. It’s a tradition. As per the books, they name her Amelia.
All three daughters in the Featherington family have names starting with the letter ‘P’.
Are you still confused about who belongs to which family?
Here’s the family tree of the two main families in Bridgerton season 1:
Bridgerton Family Tree
Featherington Family Tree
Let’s get into a bit more detail:
Edmund: Not much is revealed about the former Viscount except that his death has thrust Anthony into the role of Viscount as he struggles with responsibilities of being the head of the family.
Violet: The Viscountess is seen heading the family along with her son. She also guides her eldest daughter Daphne, who is navigating suitors for a potential husband.
Anthony: The eldest son and the heir to the title of the Viscount, who inherits it by the start of the series after his father’s death. He is torn between his responsibility and his love for his mistress Siena.
Benedict: The second son of the Bridgerton family. He has frequent conversations with his sister Eloise at nights where they discuss the direction of their lives. He is also seen courting the Modiste Genevieve Delacroix.

Daphne: Completely oblivious about realities of married life, Daphne discovers how arduous maintaining relationships can be as she finds love with Simon Basset, the Duke of Hastings.
Eloise: A bit different from the rest of her family, Eloise does not care about being proper and keeping up traditions. She, instead, wants to study and lead a very different life.
