Arthur Aylesworth

Arthur Aylworth, the immigrant ancestor (d. 1726) came to America prior to 1679 but the exact date may be lost to history.  Opinions seem to prevail that he left England because of the religious situations involving King Charles II.  Some members of the family were advocates of the Parliament in the civil war against the monarchy.

Upon coming to America, he settled in Quidnesset Neck, Rhode Island.   He was appointed an inspector for the county in February 1699, and in May was elected Ratemaker

In June of 1699 was elected to the post of Viewer of Fences and Supervisor of Roads.
