John Alderman (circa 1750 - 1811)

52 Ancestor Challenge - Challenge 29

Blake, King, Coleman, Pearce, Farmer, Mary (unknown), Lambden, Sarah (unknown), Knight, Ellis, Knight, Vincent, Butt, O'Ford, Arnold, Molton, Cotterell, Bartlett, Alderman, Shepherd, Sherwood, Elizabeth (unknown), Happerfield, Collins, Rawlings, Tanner, Dove, Morgan, Lywood, Lanham, unknown, Peck, Pincombe, Charley, Rowcliffe, Pearse, Rew, Moggridge, Siderfin, Kent, Gray, Hilton, Cobb, Sproxton, Routledge, Tweddle, Routledge, Routledge, (unknown) Buller, unknown, Beard, Hemsley, Welch, Brockhouse, Cheatle, Woodcock, unknown Taylor, unknown, Harborne, Lewis, Roberts, Croxall, Lawley, unknown

John Alderman was the father of Hannah Alderman  (baptized 2 Aug 1789 at Kimpton, Hampshire) and Hannah married Charles Coterill 23 Oct 1824 at Kimpton. John Alderman married Joanna Shepherd 13 Jan 1772 at Kimpton. They baptized five children at Kimpton:

John baptized 4 May 1772 and buried 7 May 1772 at Kimpton
William baptized 2 Feb 1782 
Frances baptized 21 Jun 1784
William baptized 22 Jan 1787
Hannah baptized 2 Aug 1789

The ten years is a large gap between John and William but the priest consistently identified the mother Joanna as Joanna Shepherd in all baptisms. Possibly they lived elsewhere for a period of time and I have not yet searched other areas.    The burial record for John Alderman gives his age as 61 years when he died 20 Feb 1811 and there is a baptism 2 Apr 1749 at Ham, Wiltshire (11 miles from Kimpton) that is the only baptism that I found that would work looking at Find My Past. Neither the name Philip nor the name Elizabeth was used by this couple which is somewhat disconcerting so will keep my eye out for other possibilities. Philip Alderman married Elizabeth Aldridge 26 Feb 1748 at Ham, Wiltshire.

Children baptized by Philip and Elizabeth Alderman at Ham:

John baptized 2 Apr 1749
Mary baptized 24 Mar 1750
James baptized 9 Sep 1753
Philip baptized 7 Sep 1758; buried 7 Sep 1758 at Ham

No further information for Philip. There are two baptisms for Elizabeth Aldridge at Ham, the first the daughter of James and Mary baptized 7 May 1727 and the second daughter of John junior and baptized 23 Aug 1724.
