John Richmond, The Emigrant #1

John Richmond (1), 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 record he is known to have been at Newport and other places,--but he returned to Taunton and died there March 20, 1664, aged seventy. [What was known in 1896 when the Richmond family book was written]

5. Mary

The following records, without much doubt, refer to John Richmond, of Taunton:--
To the Constable of Saco: These

Febr. 7, 1636.  Mr. Theophilus Davies against Mr. John Richmond, an action of Slander.

Mr. Henry Broade, an action of trespass against Mr. Theop. Davies and Mr. John Richmond

March 6, 1636.  John Richmond, an action of trespass against Mr. Tho. Lewis, and also a complaint against the said Lewis for detayning the said Richmond's servant

March 7, 1636. Mr. Thomas Lewis is by verdict of a jury to pay unto John Richmond six  £ (pounds)
ten shillings, for two barrells of beife.

March 14, 1636. John Richmond, an action against Mr. Tho. Lewis for detayning his servant against the law.

May 2, 1637.  Thomas Page, an action of trespass against John Richmond

June 1637.  John Richmond, an action for debt against Theoph. Davies.

[NEHGS Register, Vol. 39, 1885, pp. 362-4.  Court Records of the Province of Maine.  Held at Saco under Capt. William Gorges]

John Richmond's Will has been transcribed here.

Genevieve Richmond Carradine

Thanks to fellow Richmond descendant, Michelle, who informed me that Genevieve Winifred (Richmond) Carradine, who was notable in her own right (said to be the first female brain surgeon in the United States, though I have yet to find corroborating evidence), was also famous through her Carradine son (John, born Richmond Reed Carradine) and grandchildren.  

Genevieve Winifred Richmond was born in 1885 to Horace and Winifred (Ryan) Richmond, in Milford, Otsego County, New York.

*Genevieve Richmond married (1st) William Reed Carradine, a corrspondent for the Associated Press, on February 3, 1905, in New York.  Mr. Carradine died about 1908.  Her second husband was Leonard Adolph Peck, whom she married in Philadelphia in 1916.  Leonard Peck died on 20 April 1967, in St. Petersburg, Florida.
