THE RICHMOND FAMILY

First Generation.

JOHN RICHMOND1, the emigrant, was born in 1594; he came to America from Ashton

Keynes, Wiltshire, England. He probably left England about 1635, and was one of the

purchasers of Taunton in 1637. Undoubtedly he was married before he came to this country, but neither the name of his wife, the date of their marriage, nor the date of her death, has been found.

He was away from Taunton much of his life, -- through the records he is known to have

been at Newport and other places, -- but he returned to Taunton and died there March 20, 1664, aged seventy.

Family History

christineporter8754added this on 12 Jun 2008

RICHMOND originated in B r i 1 1 a n y, France, deriving their name from the two French words "riche" and "monde'' or "monte/' and being known at various times and places by the different forms of the name, such as : Ryche- monde, Richemount, Richmonte, Richmond and Richmon. Roaldus Musard de Richmond, who came from France to England with William the Conqueror, is said to have ridden at the side of his illustrious leader at Hastings Field, and is spoken of by Thackeray as being a direct descendant of King Edward I. The family settled early in Yorkshire, and the branch which located at Ashton-Keynes, county Wiltshire, are supposed to be descended from the Yorkshire Richmonds, the line of descent to the American family being as follows: Roaldus Musard De Richmond (heretofore mentioned), Hascalfus Musard De Richmond, Roaldus De Richmond ''Le En- nase,'' Sir Alan De Richmond, Sir Roald De Richmond, Alan Richmond De Croft, Sir Roald Richmond De Croft, Eudo De Richmond, Elyas De Richmond, Elyas (2) De Richmond, Thomas De Richmond, William De Richmond (who married Alice, daughter and heiress of Thomas Webb, of Draycott, and for the next four generations the family assume the name of Webb) ; William Richmond, alias Webb; William (2) Richmond, alias Webb; Edmond Richmond, alias Webb; Henry Richmond, alias Webb ; John Richmond, supposed to be identical with John Richmond, of Taunton. The last named, according to a manuscript left by one of his family, took part in the civil wars in England. Their manor at Ashton-Keynes contained about four hundred acres of land, and they owned the entire village of that name. (I) John Richmond, known as John of Taunton, to distinguish him from others of the name who came to America during the same period, was born in 1594, and in 1597 was baptized at Ashton-Keynes, a parish in county Wiltshire, England. He emigrated to America about 1635, perhaps direct to Massachusetts, but as the first definite knowledge of his being there is in 1637, it has been supposed by many that he may have been the John Richmond spoken of as being in Maine, as George Richmond, who may have been his cousin, was trading with Saco, Maine, in 1635, and the name of John Richmond is found on the court records of that place during March, 1636. He became one of the original purchasers of the town of Taunton, Massachusetts, in 1637, being owner of six shares, and took the oath of allegiance there prior to 1640. His name does not appear on the list of those able to bear arms, in 1643, and no record of his name is found there until 1655, when he was also in Rhode Island. If he took part in the civil wars of England during this time, according to family tradition, his absence is thus easily explained, and tradition also says he was known as Colonel John, as result of this service. He and his sons became large landholders, and the family lived in the easterly part of the town, their name being still perpetuated in the village of Richmondtown, in that location. John Richmond made his will in 1664, in which document he bequeaths to his son John all his writings, ''which are in my chest, in my son-in-law's, Edward Rew's house." He made his mark in signing this will, the reason being probably on account of his age and feebleness, as he therein mentions his "writings,'' and his sons Edward and John were well educated, refined and gentlemanly for their day and age. He was one of the older men of Taunton and died there March 20, 1664. Neither the date of his marriage nor the name of his wife has yet been found, but it is supposed he married before coming to America. Children : John ; Edward, born about 1632; Sarah, about 1638: Mary, about 1639. (II) John (2), eldest son of John (i) Richmond, was born before the family left England, about 1627, and as a young man settled on his father's land in Taunton. He became prominent in every public transaction in the town, and in its interest purchased a large amount of land from the Indians. He served as constable in 1674 and again in 1685 : was a member of the council in 1676 and again in 1690. His home was on "Neck of Land," about three-quarters of a mile from the "green" or center, and here he and his wife were buried. He died October 7, 1715, at the age of eighty-eight years. It is supposed he was twice married, although no record has been found of his first wife.
