Lived on the James River at the head of Four Mile Creek in Henrico Parrish. Richard is believed to have descended from the Parker family of Brownshome/Shillingham, Yorkshire, England. Richard Parker’s Will mentions wife Mitha (or Witha) (on the deeds giving property to his daughters his wife signed Elizabeth); daughter Ann, now wife of James Daniel; daughter Elizabeth, now wife of William Atkinson; daughter Mary now wife of Lewis Jinkins; and son Richard the executor. Thomas Owen and Robert Woodson, Jr. were witnesses. It was dated 27 Feb. 1726 and recorded 6 March 1726. Henry Pew, whose will was recorded in 3rd March 1711, mentioned grandson Joseph Adkins and was witnessed by John Adkins. I found in the Henrico Deed Books the Henry was 45 in 1679 and John was 17 in 1678. Henry Pew also mentioned a grand son Abraham Childers, Jr. In 1686 an Abe Childers (probably the senior Abraham) was 30 years of age. Also along these lines, Richard Parker “for love and affection” gave a cow calf to John Cannon and Esther his wife on April 1, 1689. This John Cannon was 43 in 1686 and his wife Esther was 22.

According to COLONIAL WILLS OF HENRICO CO. VA PART 1 1654-1737 pg 115 Richard Parker the first was married to a Mary or a Mitha. Their son Richard married a Judith in 1721. The first Richard died in March, 1726. He is also found him in Surry Co. VA records. His daughter Elizabeth married William Atkinson in 1716.
