RIDLEYS OF CAYUGA COUNTY, NEW YORK.

Drury Ridley 1 (1)*, parents' names unknown, was born in the County
of Sussex, Eng. ; married in the parish of Worth, and had issue nine chil-
dren, of whom hereafter.

SECOND GENERATION.

Elvydine Ridley 2 (1), eldest son of Drury 1 (1), was born in the parish
of Worth, County of Sussex, Eng., and had issue seven children. He
lives in England.

Charity Ridley 2 (1), eldest daughter of Drury 1 (1), was born in the
parish of Worth, County of Sussex, Eng. No issue.

Ann Ridley 2 (1), second daughter of Drury 1 (1), was born in the par-
ish of Worth, County of Sussex, Eng. ; has large family.



* The family name of Drury was derived from a place in the Duchy of Normandy ;
was established in England at the Conquest (1066), and became, subsequently,
divided into three distinct branches: the lirst settled at Rougham, the second at
Welhorden, and the third at Hawstead. The baronetcy expired Jan. 20, 1759.
Their arms are " Arg. on a chief vert. : a tan between two mullets perced or."
The present representative of the family is the Rev. George Drury, n. a., of Clay-
ton. Suffolk, Eng. It is a little singular that there should be a " Drury Ridley "
in Virginia, another in New York, and still another in Vermont, with no apparent
connection between the three families ; but the Drurys are numerous in England,
and the families have evidently frequently become allied by marriage.
