ANSWERS. 152 RICHARDSON - Following answer to Richardson, 220 1 William Richardson, "who was one of the most prominent men of Colonial times, member of the House of Burgesses, from 1676 to 1683,, held many offices of honor" came from England in 1650, and died May, 1698: married - 1667 - Elizabeth Talbot, widow of Richard Talbot His will was "proven May ye 28, 1698." 2 Joseph Richardson (son of William Richardson and his wife, Elizabeth Talbot), born --, died 1740, married October 25, 1705, Sarah Thomas (daughter of Samuel Thomas and Elizabeth Hutchins his wife, of Calvert county, born 1689. 3. William Richardson, Jr. (son of Joseph Richardson and Sarah Thomas his wife) born 1720, married Isabel De La Calmes, third child and eldest daughter of Marquis De La Calmes, a French Huguenot nobleman, born 1704 and died 1751, came to Williamsburg, James City county, Va., and Married Winifred Waller, born 1709, died October 6, 1751, daughter of John Waller, of Westmoreland county, Va., and great-grand-daughter of Colonel John Waller (the emigrant), of New Kent county, Va., and his wife , Mary Key. Col John Waller was born in England in 1617, and emigrated to Virginia in 1636. Winfred Waller was married to Marquis De La Calmes soon after his arrival in America. "She was of distinguished parentage possessed of noble qualities of mind, and rare virtues. Her husband resided in Williamsburg, Va. (where they married), but after a short time they removed to Shenandoah Valley, Va., and consequently became one of the early settlers. Their home was in Clark county about three miles for 'Millwood,' near the Shenandoah river where the Marquis acquired by grant from Lord Fairfax a large tract of land, here planted the first vineyard in the valley, and this farm is still called 'Vineyard Plantation'" The children of William Richardson and Isabel Calmes were. 1 Elizabeth Richardson born May 29, 1747, married Col Samuel Price, of Virginia. 2 Miriam Richardson born December 27, 1748, married John Buck of Virginia. 3 Sarah Richardson born July 25, 1750, married Benjamin Combs, of Va. 4 Mary Richardson, born August 31, 1752, married Charles Buck, of Virginia. 5 John Croley Richardson, born March 12, 1754, married Sarah Bainbridge Hall, of Virginia. 6 Anne Richardson, born October 10, 1756, married Thomas Buck of Virginia. 7 Samuel Marquis Calmes Richardson, born February 1, 1760, married Catherine Bainbridge Hall. 8 William Richardson, born August 16, 1763 married Miss Pugh. 9 Marquis Richardson, born September 21, 1768 married Henrietta Catlett. The children of (5) Captain John Croley Richardson, ensign in Baltimore regiment, Revolutionary army (fifth child and eldest son of Col William Richardson and Isabel Calmes, his wife) and his wife, Sarah Bainbridge Hall were. 1 Edward Richardson, married Fannie Respass, of Macon county, Ky. 2 Miriam Richardson, married Mr. Marcus. 3 Dr William Hall Richardson, married Judith Swann Boswell. 4 John Croley Richardson, married, first, Miss Parker second Adelaide Wade. 5 Samuel Q Richardson, married Mary Hopkins Harrison. 6 Sarah Hall Richardson, married Mr Richards. 7 Marquis Calmes Richardson, married Ann Dougherty. The above is the tracing of one branch, and that only to four generations prior to the present time. The history of the Richardson and collateral branches - Bainbridge and Thomas families of Maryland, Virginia, and then of Kentucky, is, I understand, soon to be issued by a descendant of the Richardson family, now residing in Washington city. A daughter of Col Samuel Q Richardson is now living in St. Louis, Mo., quite advanced in years and is the mother of Mrs. Mary Harrison Leighton Shields, wife of Gen. George Howell Shields, of that city. Said Samuel Q. Richardson, born in Fayette county, Ky. February, 1791, died 1834, and his wife Sarah Bainbridge Hall (not Sarah Bainbridge Price), who was a sister of my paternal grandmother Catherine Bainbridge Hall, who married, first, Capt Francis Hall, of Wales, and came to America "and settled at Hallstown, Jefferson county, Maryland." After the death of Captain Francis Hall, his widow, Sarah Hall (nee Bainbridge) married her cousin, Lieutenant Bainbridge of the United States navy, born May 7, 1774, died 1822. Col Samuel Q. Richardson, who resided in Lexington, Ky., was a brilliant and prominent lawyer, and his brother, Dr. William Hall Richardson of the same city, was an eminent physician and surgeon, was one of the founders of "Transylvania University" and Professor of Obstetrics in that institution.
