Alexander Ritchie1

M, b. circa 1695, d. 26 August 1776
ChartsStuart S. Nugent Pedigree Chart
     Alexander was born at perhaps, Glasgow, Scotland, circa 1695. Alexander Ritchie may, or may not, have been born in Glasgow, Scotland. He may have, in fact, been born in Northern Ireland. There is, at this point, no way to be sure.

The only thing we know for sure is that he was in the Hudson, NH, area ca 1736, when his son William was born.

At that time there was a large Scotch/Irish population of immigrants in the area.

His children, beginning with William, b. 1736, and ending with Alexander, Jr., were all born at Windham, Rockingham, NH, between 1736 and 1748. Their mother was named Sarah -- surname unknown.

I suspect but, cannot prove that he was married previously to Sarah, perhaps to a Mary, from which union may have come John, b. 1727 and died ca 1776.

According to Noel, who is looking at family traditions, this John was the father of Samuel E. and the twins Mary C., and Martha B., who were born 26 Mar 1800 and 19 Mar 1802, respectively.

The problem here is: if John died 1776, he could not possibly have been the father of James and the twins.

So, what is going on here? The vital records of Hudson, which are handwritten, and are copies of earlier records, clearly state that Samuel was the son of James and Abigail (?) Ritchie.

The problems is that the vital record dates of birth for the children of James, although their names correspond to what Noel has, do not correspond to the dates celebrated as birthdays as listed in the diaries of Charles Smith, son of Mary Ellen Ritchie.

All this aside: Whether Samuel Ritchie was the son of James and Abigail, or whether he was the son of John Ritchie, both fathers appear to have been sons of Alexander Ritchie, one of the Scotch/Irish 18th century settlers of southeastern, New Hampshire..1,2 He married Sarah unknown circa 1734 at perhaps, Londonderry, Rockingham, New Hampshire, The extracted birth records for all the children name the parents as Alexander Richey and Mary.1,3 Alexander Ritchie died on 26 August 1776 at Windham, Rockingham, New Hampshire.4
