John Aldridge was party to the Chancery suit of Aldridge v Forbes into which the compensation was paid for the enslaved people on the estates formerly belonging to Edmund Fleming Akers (q.v.). This was probably an administrative suit to implement Akers' will rather than a contentious one. John Aldridge was possibly the London lawyer whose partnership with Ralph Colley Smith at 9 New Court Lincoln's Inn was dissolved in 1833.
