--------------------

   Richard Shipp, eldest son of Josiah and Elizabeth (Brookes) Shipp, was born in Saint Anne's Parish, Rappahannock County (later Essex County),Virginia, circa 1685. By the terms of his father's will of 1705 he received the plantation whereon he was then living and it would seem that Richard succeeded to that estate and lived there.
   By will dated 29 January 1716/7 Thomas Meader, of Essex County, bequeathed to his son, John Meader, certain land, but provided that if the said John should die without issue the land was to descend to Richard Shipp. Thomas Meader, was the half-brother of Mrs. Elizabeth (Brookes) Shipp and previously had deeded to her husband, Josiah Shipp, 150 acres on which he was then living.
   Richard Shipp, of Saint Anne's Parish, left a will dated 3 September 1723 and proved by his widow, Mary Shipp, on 19 May 1724. Richard and Mary Shipp had but two children. To his elder son, Thomas Shipp, he bequeathed his entire landed estate and to his second son, Richard Shipp, a negro woman. The following orders of the Essex Court of June 1727 prove that these two sons were under legal age at the time of their father's death:
   "Thomas Ship by petition prays that he may choose James Blassingham for his Guardian which is allowed."
   "William Thomas is assigned Guardian of Richard Shipp, Orphan."

Richard married 2 Mary Tiller 1, daughter of William Tiller and Mary (Unknown), on BET. 1708 - 1712 in Rappahonnock Co., Va. or Essex Co., Va. Mary was born 3 before 1696. She died 4 BET. 11 JUN 1724 - 1727.

   Broderbund Vol. 3 Tree #3692 gives the name of the wife of Richard Shipp as Mary Tiller. All other sources give no maiden name for her. -T.E.King Source for Tiller as the maiden name of Mary is:
   Broderbund World Family Tree Vol. 3 Ed. 1, Tree #3692
   This archive also has the wife of Josiah (Richard's father) as Susanna Meader. Josiah's wife was actually Elizabeth Brookes whose mother was Susanna (?) Who married: 1. Thomas Brookes, 2. Job Virgitt, 3.John Meader, 4. Mr Davis (See: Tyler's Quarterly V29 pgs.51-53.) -T.E.King
   Tiller Family researcher, Terry Tiller, gives the husband of Mary Tiller as Richard Shipp.

They had the following children:

   + 	11 	M 	i 	Thomas ,Sr. Shipp
     	12 	M 	ii 	Richard Shipp was born 1 1710. He died 2 WFT Est. 1711-1800.
