About Richard Truesdell

Married shortly after his father's death. Richard, a weaver, lived in nearby Dedham. Although he was the eldest son, he did not participate actively in the administration of his father' s estate, but left that to next oldest brother, Samuel Jr. It is inferred that he permitted his mother and her other children to occupty the original homestead in Newton, although he did acquire the adjacent "mansion house and barn" with 40 acres which was the former Elijah Kenrick home. Subsequently, he sold this tract to Elijah Kenrick, Jr. for L80 (Middlesex Deeds XII , 602).

About 1702 he moved from Dedham to Mashamughet Purchase near Woodstock, first called New Roxbury, which at that time was under the jurisdiction of Massachusetts.
