About Elizabeth Bridger

Not the same as Elizabeth Jackman, widow Caulfield

The will of Arthur [Arthur Allen II] was proved in Surry Co. Court September 5, 1710 and named the following children.

  • 3. Elizabeth Bridger

The will of Arthur Allen II implies that two of Elizabeth's children, Joseph and Martha, were of age at the time: so, they would have been born no later than 1688--thereby establishing a likely birth for her in the early 1670s, at the latest. Consequently, she was in every probability her parents's eldest child. She died between the 2 December 1726 making of her sister Ann Day's will, in which she was mentioned, and probably 27 December 1730: her husband's will, which was made on this date, names no wife and places one of their under-age sons under guardianship.
