Immediate Family

About Richard Smith, of Wethersfield

Richard Smith of Stratford-on-Avon is listed in several records as a "mercer" (merchant of silk and fine cloth, the same profession as his grandfather). He may have been trained by Henry Walker, the overseer of his father's will.

Jones (454) suggests Richard Smith of Wethersfield was one of the twenty men that George Wyllys, esq., lord of the manor of Fenny Compton, 13 miles east of Stratford, sent ahead to set up his seat in Hartford, Conn. before he came in 1636.

Richard served jury duty twice in 1650 and was involved in a lawsuit in 1652 (Records of the Particular Court). In 1658 he sold a lot to his son-in-law Matthias Treat and in 1662 he gave his youngest son Jonathan all his real estatein Wethersfield. There is no will, so presumably he provided for his other children some other way (TAG 25:126).

Harris, in the Register article cited, indicates that the 1669 entry actually reads 'above 80 y', and uses a birth year of about 1583, based on the 1666/7 reference giving his age as 84.
