Francis Aldridge descent & Indian extraction

Francis Aldridge descent & Indian extraction

Classification: Query
Surnames: Aldridge, Prince, Thornton
Does anyone have any knowledge as to whether Francis Aldridge husband of Henretta Prince and father of Isham and Prince William among others is of Indian (presumably Cherokee) origin? I know that Prince William is said to have married a full-blooded Cherokee (Mary Ann Coons) and that several of Francis' grandchildren also married Indian women. I have reason to believe that one of Francis' great grandchildren may have been of a higher percentage of Indian blood than 1/4 from some information I have just learned. She's the daughter of Ashley whose father was Prince William's son and mother was Isham's daughter.

Hi

I'm Chris Aldridge, I've traced my roots back to Francis Aldridge of Buckinghamshire UK (later Tollerton) Born 1766 - but I'm guessing thats a different person? If not drop me a line

Thanks

I'd guess this Francis was born ca. 1730-1735. The earliest I've found him is in Surry County, Virginia but I think I've also seen a reference somewhere (that isn't in my database and that I'd have to go through my files to see if I can put my hands on) to him in Isle of Wight, County. So, yes, this is a different Francis. I really don't know that Francis was Indian/Native American. In fact, I suspect he's English. There was a tradition, however, that said that Lucinda Aldridge was of Indian descent. As I mentioned, that connection may be through the wife of Prince William Aldridge rather than through the Aldridge line itself.
