Biography

Philip Aylett. Son of Major William Aylett. Married Martha, daughter of Colonel William Dandridge, and Unity West, only child of Colonel Nathaniel West, the son of Colonel John West, Junior, of West Point who married Ursula, daughter of Major Joseph Croshaw. (see West and Dandridge Excursus). Issue: William (4), Unity, Anne, and John.

This last child, John Aylett, married his cousin, Elizabeth, daughter of John Dandridge, and had two children, John and William. The father died in February 1776, and both the children in August 1777. Thus bereft of all her family, the devoted mother inscribed the following lines in the (Henley) Bible: “stay, my dear children, take thy dear mother too, nor leave her here, a spectacle of woe”. In January 1779, she, however, married again, and survived her second husband Leonard Henley, by whom she had eight children. Philip Aylett also married Elizabeth Smith March 16, 1749.[1]

Phillip was appointed a tobacco inspector for Aylets warehouse in 1739.[2] A few years later, in 1741, he was appointed a Justice of King William County, in place of, among others, his deceased brother John Aylett.[3]

In 1749, he was among a group of petitioners who took up 100,000 acres of land on the Mississippi River, along with Thomas Dansie,[4] who was later to be the guardian of Phillip's sons after his death.

He is mentioned in a 1751 deed in Louisa County, " Philip Aylette and Elizabeth his wife of King William Co. to John Brockman of Orange Co." The land also bounded on "Philip Buckner and Wm. Aylett's Orphan's corner",[5] so it was probably inherited land.

In Nov 1755, Phillip's sons were mentioned as heirs of their grandfather, William Aylett, in a Caroline County lawsuit by their guardian Thomas Dansie (apparently some associate of Phillip's)[6] so Phillip was probably dead by then.
