Charity Berry and Waldron Loveridge b abt 1688 of NY and NJ

Posted: 1561343815000
Classification: Marriage
Surnames: Loveridge, Berry, Sandford, Horton
There has been confusion about the identity of Waldron Loveridge (aka in Dutch church records as Walrandt Lifferis) who married Charity Berry. They are the probable parents of Richard Loveridge b abt 1724.

Some have placed Waldron in the Lefferts family. Sharon Olson and I found that he was actually the son of William Loveridge (husband of Temperance Moore). Details can be found in Part 4 of The Early Sandford Family in New Jersey, Revisited, The Genealogical Magazine of New Jersey, Vol. 92 (2017), p. 112. Parts 1-3 of that series include a genealogy-biography of Charity Berry's maternal ancestors.

Others have identified Waldron's wife's surname as Horton. I don't think Charity's date of death is known (though she was alive in 1719) or if Waldron had a second wife, but it appears Waldron's son Richard was named after Charity's father, Richard Berry, which suggests Charity was Richard Loveridge's mother.
