The earliest mention I found of WIlliam Aldridge was in 1689 in the Charles City County Court orders when he registered his cattle mark, a nothc in the left ear and a cut in the right ear.

There are some earlier Aldridges mentioned in VA patents as headrights but none that obviously connected up.

seems to me that WIlliam had a son William and daughter Margery and WIlliam LIkley had sons William and Peter. Peter is likley the father of your lady.

Proving that the WIlliam (2nd) is the father of Peter might be tough though becasue Prince George records stop in 1728, and I found no direct absolute connection from William (2nd) to Peter in the source I have.

The connection would be one of placec and time, but a careful search might turn up what you need.

If you get the land desrciption from the aldridge PG records you might be able to connect them all as owners of the same land by using deeds and tax records.
