About Richard Randolph

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richard_Randolph

Richard Randolph (c1691 – 1749), sometimes referred to as Richard Randolph "of Curles," was a successful planter-merchant on the James River and a member of the Virginia House of Burgesses from 1727 until his death. Randolph was the fifth son of William Randolph and Mary Isham, as well as the grandfather of John Randolph of Roanoke. He was also recommended for appointment to the Governor's Council of Virginia four times but never received an appointment. In 1724, Randolph married Jane Bolling (1702–1766), the daughter of John Bolling "of Cobbs" and Mary Kennon. They had seven children: Richard II (c1725-1786), Mary (1727–1781), Jane (c1729-bef1757), Brett (c1732-1749), Ryland (c1734-1785), Elizabeth (c1736-1773), and John (1742–1775). He died in Bath, Somerset, England, on 17 December 1748, where he had gone to recover his health.


Through his marriage to Jane Bolling, his children were lineal descendants of Pocahontas.
