preced. d. 14 Dec. 1705. Of this name, in old rec. sometimes Richmand,
two had been gr. in 1834 at Harv. and seven at other N. E. coll.
He and his wife Amy joined in a deed, August 20, 1685.
He conveyed, February 16, 1691-2, to Henry Bull, his "Father-in-law" and "Grandfather of my 2 youngest children", certain land in trust for them and "my now wife, Amy", referring in it to a deed to his son Edward, made May 20, 1686.
The inventory of his estate was filed December 8, 1696, and on the twentieth of the same month his estate was divided among Edward, eldest son, son John, for himself and his sister, Abigail Remington; William Palmer, John Palmer, Silvester Richmond, Sarah Richmond and Thomas Burdges. (The two Palmers and Burdges [Burgess] were husbands of his daughters.)
The executors of Henry Bull (who died January 22, 1673-4) settled an account, March 2, 1709, in which they reported payment of Henry and Ann Richmond's legacy of 60 pounds.
On May 20, 1657, Abigail Davis petitioned the assembly alleging that her step-father, John Cowdall and her mother had forced her into a marriage with Richard Upsell, and later in the same year the assembly declared the marriage was unlawful and that she was free to marry Edward Richmond, whom she declared in her petition to be her choice. (Colonial Records Vol. I page 359).
When old Portsmouth was divided and Newport organized, Portsmouth was reorganized and James Davice (Davis) signed (by his mark), April 30, 1639, forming "the body politick" of Portsmouth: and in the list of the inhabitants of Acquederic Island (who had become such by consent of the government), dated September 1, 1640, James Davis' name appears; It does not appear again and as there were no others of the name (save, possibly, Nicholas, who lived till 1671), it would seem that Abigail married Edward Richmond, he had died and his widow had married John Cowdall.
Edward Richmond (2) is frequently mentioned in the Colonial Records under the following dates: "1661, September 9. He had a share in Misquariecutt (westerly) land appointed to him."; "1663, December 14.

He was clerk of a court martial that was held for the trial of four indians, who, according to the sentence of the court, were executed.".
"1677, June 1. He and three others were appointed to give to such persons in Newport as they see cause, to know who will advance money for the Colony's use in sending the agent to England."
