Thomas Aldridge kept the Old Crown in 1810, but only took over after 1805. He doesn't appear to have lived in Winslow before that. It's possible that he was descended from the Aldridges who lived in Winslow in the first part of the 18th century. See Gyles Family page. He and Rachel had a son James baptised at Winslow in 1808.
