Edward Richmond, Witness To A Rhode Island Deed

Rhode Island Colonial Land Evidence - Abstract from the Office of the Secretary of State in Providence:

Deed.  Aaron Davis to Peleg Sanford---Aaron Davis, of Newport, Mason, for 12 1/2 acres of land in Newport, conveys to Peleg Sanford, of Newport, merchant, a parcel of land in Newport, 15 acres, bounded E, by the common, late of Watterman; N, partly by land of John Vahan, and part on the common; S, by land of William Brenton, Esq., Feb. 25, 1672-3.  Witnessed by Hugh Mosher, John Green, and Edward Richmond.  Confirmed by Mary Davis, wife of Aaron, April 14, 1674.

Was Edward Richmond, the witness, Edward Richmond (1632-1696) the husband of Abigail Davis, who died in Little Compton, Newport, Rhode Island?  Probably, but I don't know for sure.  Here's more about Abigail's Davis family.
