The record of Col. Sylvester Richmond (4) brother of Hon. William Richmond shows that he commanded the 6th Massachusetts Regiment in the campaign against Louisberg. For his bravery at that time, he was invited to England to receive thanks of the Crown. He declined, but sent his son, who received a commission.

He sympathized heartily and deeply with the Colonies in their struggles and felt painfully grieved when one of his sons, who had been an officer under the King of England, refused to join the Revolutionary Army.
