In 1663 a certificate of survey was issued to Richard Galloway for "Galloways," containing 250 acres. However, he did not complete the transaction of obtaining a patent upon his 250 acres of land (at West River) near the plantations of William COALE, William Richardson and Thomas Hooker.
His son Richard Galloway Jr. was born on 28 January 1663/64. It is unclear whether Richard Galloway Sr. was still living when Richard Jr. was born in January 1663/64.
In any case, sometime after his death, his two sons made a re-survey of "Galloways", each claiming one-half (or 125 acres) of "Galloways".
