Could this be the Richard Milton who came to Virginia in 1620? His apprenticeship ended in September 1620/1, and the ship "Supply" sailed September 18th 1620. Arrived in Virginia, at a point on the James River known now as Westover/Jamestown, on January 20th/29th 1620/1. This is information of Richard Milton/Melton comming to Ameriva. (from Virginia Archives) 291 l620. "A Note of the Shipping, Men and Provisions, sent and provided for Virginia, by the Right Honourable, the Earle of Southampton, and the Company, this yeare, 1620." The ships despatched between August 1620 and February 1620/1 were the Bona Nova, the Elizabeth, the May-Flower, the Supply, the Margaret and John, and the Abigail, carrying 600 persons in all. Two ships with 100 kine aboard were to sail from Ireland. Several ships were to transport the Governor, Treasurer and Marshal of Virginia, with their companies, together with other private plantations numbering 400 persons. There had been sent, or were on their way, 500 persons "for publike uses" and "for the encrease of the number of the Companies Tenants, and for maintenance of Officers", Among the "Men skilfull for setting up Staple Commodities" were three "for Masters of the Iron works", three "for perfecting the Salt-works", four Dutchmen from Hamburg "to erect SawingMills", and eight French vignerons from Languedoc who were also skilful in breeding silkworms. Patents had been granted to the Earl of Pembroke, Sir Richard Worsley, Sir Richard Bulkeley, Sir William Mounson, Captain William Nuce and Captain Ralph Hamor, who had "undertaken to transport great multitudes of People and Cattell". Printed,, 4pp., with endorsement only on p.4, which is slightly soiled. (Eighth Report, 37b.) Here is a passenger list the ship "The Supply". The Supply was the companion ship to the Mayflower. It left 3 weeks late from England and, unlike the Mayflower, it found it's way to Virginia. This is the list of arrivals. from ? pg. 426 RECORDS OF THE VIRGINIA COMPANY CLIV. SIR George Yeardley.

Richard must have been considered a responsible man because he was put in charge of Councillor Prontus's cattle while in shipment on the "Supply". It is possible that Richard the apprentice was sent to Virginia by his boss, John Milton the Scrivener. There is a statement by one authority that Richard the Scrivener was the nephew of John Milton the Scrivener. From "A list of servants remaining in Virginia" August 1st, 1622; Richard Milton. from RECORDS OF THE VIRGINIA COMPANY, 1607-1622, published by the Library of Congress. p. 396-7 (Smyth of Nibley Papers, 3(31) pages 131-139 Document in New York Public Library List of Records No. 205) A LIST OF MEN NOWE SENT FOR PLANTACON IN VIRGINIA SEPTEMBER 1620 Richard Milton years acr (same source) CXLII. THOMAS PARKER, MAYOR OF BRISTOL, CERTIFICATE FOR SAILING OF THE SHIP "SUPPLY" September 18, 1620 (Smyth of Nibley Papers, NY Public Library) Theis are to certify that in the good ship called the Supply was present XVIIIth day of September. 1620. were shipped from our port of Bristoll for plantacon in Virginia at the charges of Richard Berkeley, George Thorpe Willm Tracy and John Smyth Esqs under the conduct of the said Willm Tracy appoynted Captayne and governor over them theis fifty six psons whose names ensue, who forthwith proceeded in their voyage accordingly. Richard Milton another entry in the: RECORDS OF THE VIRGINIA COMPANY 1607-1622 indicates that the Ship Supply arrived at Jamestown on 20 Jan 1620/21. (then another entry which states:) (John Smyth) A LIST OF SERVANTS REMAINING IN VIRGINIA August 1, 1622; Richard Milton (I have read but can't find that Clement Milton was brought to America with the Smyth Co. also and stayed, yet I have not found him in any other records so possibly he returned with the Smyth Co. to England in 1622.) (from Muster of the inhabitants of Virginia settlements, January 21-23 1624/5) Settlers living at "Jordans Jorney, Charles Cittie", in Virginia January 21, 1624/5 (note* Milton,Richard was not listed in the Muster at "Jordans Jorney" in 1623/24) Milton, Richard notes; Arrrived on the Supply in 1620 Davies, John notes; (partner of William Emerson), Arrived on the George in 1617 Farrar, William notes; age 31, Arrived on the Neptune in August, 1618 (note* had land in Henrico Co.) Fludd, John notes; Arrived on the Swan in 1610 (wife) Fludd, Margaret notes; Arrived on the Supply in 1620 (daug) Finch,Frances notes; Arrived on the Supply in 1620 (son) Fludd, William notes; 3 weeks, born in "Jordans Jorney" (Note* this list I am sure is not complete but it has about 60 people on it and lists wifes and children.) From 1624 to 1632 I have found no mention of Richard Milton in Virginia, whether he returned to England during these eight years is not known. Some researchers feel that he returned to England to get married, and continued his service with John Milton (his uncle) until 1632, although I believe he was already married to Margaret Ross and had two children by this time, William and Mary, perhaps he returned to England to retrieve his family and end his apprinticeship. In 1632 Richard is found as a witness to a Land Deed, from the Charles City Order book 1641 -- 1642: (from Order Book 1641-1642) Received 14 Dec. 1632 of Mr. John Fludd, Westover, one manservant for two years in full satisfaction for 15 acres land, being land said Fludd now liveth upon, adjoining land of John Clay and John Davis. Witness: Richard Melton, Thomas Blancks (signed) John Russell Recorded 21 April 1642.)) (note* spelled Melton for the first time) (note* John Fludd's wife and child arrived with Richard on the ship "Supply" in 1620, and was listed with Richard in the above Muster). In David Masson's book (p. 338 Ref. 4 note) states "This Richard Milton, who is found in business as a scrivener as late as 1633, is ascertained to be the son of Thomas Milton. He was very probably one of the scrivener's kin, and it is, at all event, interesting to know that there was a Richard Milton practicing as a scrivener in London from 1621 to 1633, practicing by the side of John Milton---". (there is a possibility if Richard had been sent by his uncle to the Americas, that he was retained as working for his uncle until 1633.) There's no record of his marriage, but the records disclose that a Richard Melton, in London, was married in 1629 to a Mrs. Emaline Garland, another record showing a Richard Milton and his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth Milton. This contradicts records that indicate Richard Milton was married to Margaret Ross. Records also indicate a Richard Milton who wrote a Will for Francis Spencer on 7 April 1636 and proved it on 24 October 1636 in England. Since Richard Milton of 1620 received a Land Grant on 29 November 1635 in Charles City County, Virginia in is unlikely that these are the same Richard's. John Milton (Scrivener) disappears after 1632, and since a Richard Milton appears in Virginia after that date it has been advanced that the Richard Milton who attested to the Spencer will was a brother of John.
