About John Eldridge, II

Was he descended from George and Anne Aldridge of Talbot County, Maryland (son of Thomas Aldridge and Elizabeth Mitchell), or of Nicholas and Martha Besson Aldridge of Anne Arundel County, Maryland (son of Thomas Aldridge and Elizabeth Purdy)? He seems to be claimed by both families.

John and Elinor moved to Prince George's County, MD, acquiring two tracts of land: Tucker's Cultivation and Pasquaham.

John's will proved 1750 in Prince George's County, MD (Liber 1, Folio 418). Eleanor's will dated 6 July 1760 (Liber 1, Folio 523).

John willed Tucker's Cultivation to son Jacob and Pasquaham to his son John.

Had children John, Jacob, Thomas and Susannh.
