Ancestors of Clay W. G. FULCHER, Jr.


Generation No. 12


       3072. Clement Aldridge, died Jan 19, 1698/99 in Worstead, Norfolk, England. He was the son of 6144. Clement Aldrich/Aldridge and 6145. Susan Boswell. He married 3073. Elizabeth Tills/Tilles Oct 18, 1668 in Worstead, Norfolk, England.
       3073. Elizabeth Tills/Tilles, born 1646 in Worstead, Norfolk, England; died Sep 20, 1699 in Northumberland County, VA. She was the daughter of 6146. William Tills and 6147. Mary.

Notes for Clement Aldridge:
It is unclear whether Clement died in Northumberland County VA where he lived or died in England where he was born. I suspect the former. Clement and Elizabeth were immigrants to Virginia.

Clement was a joiner by trade and, in 1678, took Graves Garratt as an apprentice. In November, 1674, Clement and Thomas Flynt were requested by the court to inspect a building for its worthiness, and on November 19, 1679, he was paid for mending the parish church.

On June 7, 1679 the Court of Northumberland ordered the list of tithables divided into forties; each group of forty was ordered to deliver an able man along with a horse, arms and other provisions to the house of Thomas Mathew. Clement was one of the men charged with the responsibility of insuring that this order was carried out (Co. Court Note Bk. IX:16, 26). On May 16, 1694, Clement was appointed constable of Cherry Point.

His will was presented to court on January 19, 1698-99. Unfortunately, this will was destroyed in a courthouse fire.

No records of Clement's children, except for William's, are known of. Clement Jr.'s will was destroyed in the same courthouse fire that his father's was. So we don't know who Clement Sr.'s grandchildren were, other than William's offspring.

The following is a Northumberland County VA court record from Patricia Daniels, Jan 26, 1997.

Court 21 Sept 1699, page 66. Motion of Clem't Arledge, probate to him of the last will of Eliz. Arledge his wife, proved by Edw'd Barnes and Hugh Staten.

The following excerpt was an email from Carolyn Jett, on January 13, 1997:

"Clay,

Clement Aldridge/Arledge was in Northumberland by 2 Apr. 1667, which was when he witnessed the will of the Reverend David Lyndsay. He was a neighbor of Lyndsay, whose gravestone (or half of it) is still there. That gives us the general location of Aldridge/Arledge's land, in the area known as Cherry Point Neck.

On 20 9ber [November] of probably 1666 or 1667, Clement purchased 100 acres of land. Nearby was another tract of 100 acres belonging to Cloud [Claudius] Tullos. It is possible that this Clement Aldridge was the same man who married Elizabeth Tilles at Worstead, Norfolk, England in 1668. If so, he must have returned to England to marry her, for he was here before that date. At any rate, the wife of Clement of Northumberland was Elizabeth.

Many researchers think that he was the Clement Aldridge who was christened on 25 Sep. 1636 in Worstead, son of Clement and Susan Boswell Aldridge.

Clement Aldridge/Arledge was a master joiner [carpenter]. There are several records proving this in Northumberland records.

Clement Aldridge died in 1698/9 in Northumberland. He left six children, who were

1. Clement Aldridge, Jr., d. 1705/6, m. (1) Elizabeth and (2) Mary. He left a daughter, Elizabeth, who was 12 years old by 1710.
2. daughter - no further info.
3. daughter - no further info.
4. William Arledge - d. 1724/5, m. (1) Alice and (2) Sarah. See below.
5. Isaac Aldridge
6. John Aldridge

Although the surname Aldridge was used interchangeably with Arledge or Arlege throughout the 1600s, the children of William Arledge used Arledge more than Aldridge. William left the following children:

1. William Arledge

2. John Arledge, d. circa 1730 leaving a son, John Arledge, who was bound to William Owens to learn carpentry.

3. Clement Arledge, m. (1) ? and (2) Ann. He sold his land in Northumberland Co. on 9 May 1743, and removed from the area.

4. Jane Arledge

5. Isaac Arledge, b. circa 1721, and probably moved to New Bern, Craven Co., NC with his guardian, John Callahan, who went there after 1738. (He was first apprenticed to Callahan, then made his ward.)

6. Sarah Arledge - b. circa 1724/5, and probably also went to North Carolina with her guardian, John Callahan. [Sarah and Isaac were the children of William's second wife, Sarah. The other four children were older, although William and John were still under the age of 20 when their father wrote his will on 25 Aug. 1724.]

This is the only line that I have researched. I hope this will give you some ideas for further research.

Note from Connie Moretti:

"Chester County, S.C. has deeds available from the date the county was formed in 1785. Prior to that, deeds are in the Camden District or in Craven County both of which were discontinued but the records may be in the state archives. Land Records of whatever sort may be your best bet for going back farther."

Notes for Elizabeth Tills/Tilles:
Elizabeth Tills/Tilles was descended from a family which had long resided in Norfolk, England. The earliest record of someone by this name in Norwich is the 1374 will of William Tillis. Other members of this family also immigrated to America and are mentioned in Northumberland County records in conjunction with the Aldridge/Arledge family.
