1072. William Alderman Sr.1571,1572 was born about 1640.1355 He died on 1 August 1697 at the age of 57 in Connecticut Colony, Hartford Co., Farmington.1355 The first ancestor to whom we definitely trace without further research is William Alderman, who was born about 1640 (this date by one other said to have been about 1656), probably in England but perhaps in Masachusetts or in Windsor, Conn. He was known to have been in Windsor in 1672, later removing to Farmington, and still later to Simsbury, Conn., wher he married Mary Case.
William Alderman was already in the midst of business engagements in Simsbury when we first learn of him. The records show that he had business interests in Farmington, Windsor, and Hartford, as well as in Simsbury. He traded in land and was holder of extensive real estate.
He left no will and his estate was probated August 25, 1697, insolvent. Power of Administration was given to Mary, the widow. The children in 1698 were Thomas, aged 14, William aged 12, John aged 3, Joseph aged 1, Mary aged 17 and Sarah aged 6.
