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.

The latter 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.
