About Clement Aldridge, II

From the Arledge Family History Project (Pam Wilson: wilsonpam@mindspring.com):

Clement and Elizabeth were immigrants to Virginia. His parents, Clement and Susan, may have preceded them. Sekanick speculates that, since Clement (Sr) died in 1668, Clement (Jr) may have come to America to claim an inheritance. A Clement Aldridge first appears in records of Northumberland Co, VA in 1666. However, Clement's first wife Alice died in 1668 in Worstead, and he must have remarried immediately, Clement and Elizabeth's two children were christened in Worstead, Norfolk, England, in 1669 and 1670.

Lived in Bowtracy and Fairfield Parishes north of the Wicomico River (in 1698 these parishes merged to form St. Stephen's Parish, the records of which are in the State Library of VA).

children: see remnants of Northumb. Co Births and Deaths, 1650-1810, p.3 [Names are illegible; clarified in Franklin Aldridge and Alice Sekanick books, but don't know their source].

Many, many references to Clement and Elizabeth in Northumberland Co. Order Book. Many lawsuits over tobacco. Occasionally the spelling Arledge or Aldredge appears instead of Aldridge. See F.R. Aldridge's "Aldridge Records, Vol. II" for a thorough listing.

1668 Court order determining that Clement Aldridge stands indebted to Richard Haskins and that Aldridge should pay Haskins 680 pounds tobacco.

Northumberland County Court 21 Aug 1672 (Book of Orders p. 156): "Whereas an attachment was awarded to Mr. THO" MATHEW agt ye Estate of STEPHEN BYLAND for five hundred & fowreteene (514) pounds of tobacco and caske, wch Attahcment is returned executed on soe much in ye hands of CLEMT: ALRIDGE: Judgement is granted ye sd MATHEW agt ye sd ALRIDGE for ye sd summme with costs. [Ruth and Sam Sparacio, Order Book Abstracts]

Death dates in some sources given as 19 Jan 1698/9. This conflicts with Franklin Aldridge's claim that he remarried in 1701 to Mary Donaldson, for whom documentation exists. Further evidence leads to conclude that it was his SON Clement who married Mary Donaldson. Others say it is unclear whether Clement died in Northumberland County VA where he lived or died in England where he was born. However, there are references to Clement's will being proved in Northumberland County on 19 Jan 1699; one of the witnesses was Mary Tullos [reference: NEED TO FIND: O.D. Lindsay, Virginia Colonial Abstracts, Vol. 1, p. 52; cited in article on Rodham family in Northumberland Historical Society Bulletin, XII, 1975.]

21 Aug 1678: Graves Garrett son of Thomas Garrett, dec'd, bound to Clement Aldridge [Northumberland County Court Orders p.1].

17 Aug 1681: William Leach, orphan and noe Estate, bound to Clement Aldridge [Northumberland County Court Orders, p.99].

Clement was a joiner by trade and, in 1678, took Graves Garratt as an apprentice. In November, 1674, Clement and Thomas Flynt were requested by the court to inspect a building for its worthiness, and on November 19, 1679, he was paid for mending the parish church.

On June 7, 1679 the Court of Northumberland ordered the list of tithables divided into forties; each group of forty was ordered to deliver an able man along with a horse, arms and other provisions to the house of Thomas Mathew. Clement was one of the men charged with the responsibility of insuring that this order was carried out (Co. Court Note Bk. IX:16, 26).

15 Nov 1693: CLEMENT ALDRIDGE and ELIZABETH his wife vs. WILLIAM BEANE, nonsuit, and C. and Eliz. to pay damages [Northumberland County Court Orders, p.632]

On May 16, 1694, Clement was appointed constable for Cherry Point Neck, one of six constables appointed for the county [Northumberland County Court Orders, p. 652].

16 Oct 1695: CLEMENT ALDRIDGE was one of witnesses (along with CAPT. RODHAM KENNER and Mr. THOMAS BUSHROD) to probate the will of Mr. CHRISTOPHER NEALE, as petitioned by HANNAH NEALE, Executrix. [Northumberland County Court Orders, p. 711]

17 Mar 1697: ELIZABETH ALDRIDGE wife of CLEMENT ALDRIDGE, JUNR, relinquishes her rights of dower to 64 acres of land sold to THO. MILLER. She also relinquishes dower in the sale of 60 acres to JOHN CRALLE. [Northumberland County Court Orders, p. 759]

19 Jan 1698/9: Motion of ELIZABETH ALDRIDGE, Exx. a Probate to her of the Last Will of CLEM'T ALDRIDGE, proved by DAVID STRAUGHAN and MARY TULLOS. [Northumberland County Court Orders, p. 759] Clement's will was presented to court on January 19, 1698-99. Unfortunately, this will was destroyed in a courthouse fire.

[21 Sept 1699: Motion of CLEM'T ARLEGE, probate to him of the last will of ELIZ. ARLEGE his wife, proved by Edw'd Barnes and Hugh Staten. [Northumberland County, VA, Court Orders, p. 66]. This is most likely a reference to the next-generation CLEMENT, who also had a wife Elizabeth.]

There are many references to land bought FROM Clement Aldridge/Arledge. For example, the 1726 will of JOHN CRALLE, SR. of St. Stephen's Parish (written 1 Oct 1726, proven 16 Apr 1728), aside from stating his desire "not to have any funeral sermon, and that there be no superfluity of drink disposed of at my funeral," left his son John Cralle sixty acres of land in "Cherry Point" WHICH I BOUGHT OF CLEMENT ABRIDGE, JUNR. [Northumberland Co. Record Book, 1726-1729, p. 97]

Northumberland County Record Books 1743-1749 (p.166) show a will of Richard CRUTE dated 11 August 1746 (proved 8 Dec 1746) who said he desired that his son Richard "might be bound to SAMUEL ALDREDGE to learn the joyners trade." Who is this SAMUEL ALDREDGE??
