  5. 12.  Richard Church was born about 1600; died on 16 Dec 1667 in Hadley, Hampshire, Massachusetts.

    Notes:

    First appears at Hartford in 1637; he may have come with, or shortly after, the Rev. Hooker. He is said to have served in the Pequot War. His name is on the Founders Monument in downtown Hartford. He removed to Hadley in 1661.

    His origins are unknown. Taking advantage of this, the notorious genealogical fraudster Gustav Anjou (1863-1942), hired by Richard Church's descendant Charles Washburn Church, concocted an English ancestry for the Richard Church of Hartford, making him a son of Richard Church and Alice Vassell of Essex, with several further generations of ancestry behind them. As documented on the excellent WikiTree page for Richard Church, portions of Anjou's fabrications, including spurious birthdates for Richard and for his marriage, and a made-up father for his wife Anne, made it into not just Charles Washburn Church's 1914 Simeon Church of Chester, Connecticut, 1708-1792, and His Descendants, but also into Benjamin Tinkham Marshall's 1922 Modern History of New London County, Connecticut and, startlingly, the generally good genealogist Lucius Barbour's Families of Early Hartford, Connecticut.

    Richard married Anne. Anne was born about 1600; died on 10 Mar 1684 in Hatfield, Hampshire, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
