About Capt. William Wooldridge

Capt. Enlisted 1779. Served: Col Martin Armstrong's Regiment DAR Ancestor #: A130225

William Wooldridge (1709-1798) was born in Henrico County, Virginia. He was apparently the second or third son of John and Martha Wooldridge of that county, and as his father's executor and legatee of his blacksmith's tools, he may have been the leader of the family after his father's death. he appears in the Henrico records from time to time in various ways but does not hold public office in the county. For example, at the April Court in 1743 together with John Wooldridge, Samuel Jordan and Jacob Trabue he was ordered to appraise the estate of Moses Ferguson, deceased.(90) The same year, "On motion of William Wooldridge leave is given him to keep an ordinary at Samuel Jordan's home below the mount and Jordan enters himself as security." (91)
