  • WILL AND INVENTORY OF FOULKE WALDRON OF COVENTRY, WARWICKSHIRE, ENG- ALSO ABSTRACTS OF OTHER WILLS.
  • By John B. Newcomb, Esq., of Elgin, III.
  • "TN my note on the Waldron, Walderne, Walden family, printed -*- in the Register for January, 1888, VoL 42, page 107, I gaye the names of eight brothers and one sister, — Alexander, 'Edward', George, Isaac, John, Robert, Samuel, William and Mary, — whose parentage I had not been able to discover, though researches had at various times been made since 1863. Recently I have received from the probate registry at Lichfield, England, a copy of the will and inventoiy of Foulke Waldron, of Coventry, Warwickshire, England. Foulke proves to have been the father of these nine children (the will names two more). Foulke Waldron^ was baptized in Alcester, Warwickshire, England, March 3, 1610, son of William by wife Catharine Raven and brother of William the Dover (New Hampshire) Recorder, and of Maj. Richard Walderne also of Dover, who was killed by the Indians June 27, 1689. (For pedigree of the family, see Register, Vol. 8, p. 78, for 1854.)
  • Foulke Waldron evidently removed early from Alcester and settied in Coventry, there being no record of his marriage or baptism of his children at Alcester. He was church warden of St. Michael's churcJi, Coventry, 1657-1671, and it is highly probable his children were baptized in this church. Unfortunately the parish records were destroyed by fire in 1690.
  • In the following documents a few names and other words are printed in italics to draw attention to them :
  • In the name of God Amen I Foulke Waldron of the citty of Coventry Blacksmith being att present weake in body but of perfect and disposeing memory praised bee God do make constitute and ordayne this to bee my last Will and Testament in manner and forme following that is to say first and principally I comend my soule into the hands of Almighty God my Creat"" trusting to bee saved by the alone meritts of Jesus Christ my only Saviour and Redeem' and my body I comitt to the earth from whence itt was to bee decently buried according to the discretion of my Executrix here after named.
