Henry Richmond And Jemima Smith

Grandson of Rhode Island Governor, Henry Bull, through Bull's daughter, Amy, and her husband, Edward Richmond, as his second wife.

25.  Henry Richmond (3) (Edward 2, John 1) was born in Little Compton, R.I.  He married Jemima Smith, daughter of Captain John Smith.  He died September 30, 1714; no children.

By deed, dated September 13, 1714, Henry Richmond, of Boston, and Jemima, his wife (with others), said Jemima and others being children "of Capt. John Smith of Winnisimmet, in Boston, aforesaid, deceased," convey to their brother John Brinterall, who married Phebe, another daughter of said John Smith, deceased, all claims upon land in Rumney and all personal property of said Smith.  The deed, however, is not signed by Henry Richmond, and was acknowledged by Jemima, December 23, 1714.*

These papers make it quite certain that there were no children.+
