  • Notes 
    • From Chase-Wigglesworth Genealogy (citation details below):

      The Richmond Family states John Richmond came from Ashton Keynes, co. Wiltshire, England. The name of his wife is unknown. They probably married in England.

      John was a purchaser of six original shares of Taunton, Massachusetts, in 1637 , but lived in Newport and other places much of his life. The court records for the Province of Maine include numerous citations of a John Richmond involved in civil cases for slander, trespass, etc., at the Saco Court in 1636 and 1637 (Register, 39: 362-4) .

      He took the oath of fidelity at Taunton before 1640 and was in Rhode Island in 1655. He was a Commissioner for Newport at the Court of Commisioners held at Portsmouth in 1656. At the Court of 17 March 1656, moderated by Roger Williams , it was ordered that "Whereas, there are divers presentments standing uppon a booke of records (belonging to ye Islan ), against John Richmond" and a number of others, the "presentments shall not be, any of them, prosecuted, except by expresse orders from His Highness ye Lord Protector" ( R. I. Colonial Records, 1:333 ). In 1656-7 John Richmond of Newport "sen'r" paid a fine levied against Edward Richmond of Newport for £3.13s which had been uncollected "by reason that noe estate was found to serve it on" (Newport, R.I. Records).
