Alice was the daughter of Robert Goldhatch or Goldwich, a husbandman(farmer) of Ashford, Kent, whose will, proved July 19, 1600, named his wife Bennet, eldest son Richard, son William, youngest son Robert, and daughter Alice Goldhatch. Robert Goldhatch had married, apparently for his second wife, at Ashford, April 16, 1585, Bennett Meade or Meede, who survived him. She, whose name is a corruption of Benedicta, was the mother of Alice, and Alice named her elder Tritton child for her.

Alice's father-in-law, Hugh Tritton, married her widowed mother, Bennet, so the first husband of Alice (Daniel Tritton) was her step-brother.

 

Alice and her second husband, Ralph Dayton, were great, great grandparents of Jonathan Dayton (1760-1824). At the age of 26 he was the youngest signer of the U.S. Constitution.
