Note: ESKRIDGE, ELIZABETH, 20 Oct. 1744; 27 Nov. 1744.

Hello: Based on the information found in records such as Vaulx-35 (will of James Vaulx, brother of Elizabeth Vaulx of this profile, in which he names his sister and her first husband Richard Craddock) and the marriage records of Virginia, U.S., Marriages of the Northern Neck of Virginia, U.S., 1649-1800 for Elizabeth Vaulx and Richard Craddock, it seems that Elizabeth should be connected as a daughter of Robert Vaulx (Vaulx-34) and Mary Foxhall Vaulx. As well, her date of birth is closer to 1680, (as given in some records) and this would fit the ages of her first two husbands (otherwise she was considerably older than they were) and also the births of her children (1714 and 1716) would also fit her being a younger woman at the time of their birth.
