      Captain Edward Richmond was born about 1632, probably before his father came to this country. He married, first, Abigail, daughter of James (handwritten "Wm." over James) Davis, and secondly, Amy Bull, daughter of Governor Henry and Elizabeth Bull.
      He died November 1696.
      Children by Abigail Davis:
      Abigail, born 1656.
      Edward, born 1658.
      John, born about 1660.
      Elizabeth, born Dec. 6, 1666.
      Mary, born 1668.
      Esther, born 1669.
      Silvester, born 1672; baptized at Little Compton, R. I., Nov. 3, 1700.
      Sarah
      Children by Amy Bull:
      Henry, born at Little Compton, R. I.
      Ann, born at Little Compton, R. I.
      The order of births is not known, but it is believed that the above is very nearly correct (handwritten note on page: "Not March, killed after July 1657").
      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 two 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).
      He was one of the incorporators of Little Compton, R. I., in 1674, and owned several
      shares.
      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 Ussell, and later in the same year the Assembly declared that the marriage with Richard was unlawful and that she was free to marry Edward Richmond, whom she declared in her petition to be her choice.
