Richard Sledge:
The first record found of the Sledge family in America, to my knowledge, is found in Hargreaves-Mawdsley "Ship Lists in Bristol and America" p. 174, which states that Richard and Ann Sledge, immigrants, arrived in the "Alithea" in 1681, sailed from Bristol, England, named Penford and their home place.

It is believed Charles is their son - Historical Southern Families - Boddie - Vol xv p. 174.
This info. is not verified.


Richard married Ann Unknown. (Ann Unknown was born about 1636 in Penford, Bristol, England.)
