Biography

The parents listed above are speculation.

Richard was born in 1611. Richard Beach ... He passed away in 1691. He is the son of John Beach and Mary Eliot.

Why Richard is not the son of John Beach and Mary Eliot
Richard Beach, who married Katherine Hull (widow), was having children c 1642, so would have been born 1620 ish. He therefore could not possibly be the son of John Beach (b c 1623) and Mary Elliot (b 1633). I am disconnecting this obvious error.

Richard of New Haven & of Elizabeth, New Jersey, was brother of Thomas and probably[1]of John. Richard m. Katharine widow of Andrew Hull[2]

Richard was an original signer of the New Haven Compact in 1639.[3]

Beach-2060 and Beach-1207 appear to represent the same person because: These three profiles Beach-2060, Beach-1604, Beach-1207 of Richard Beach are the husband of Catherine (maiden name maybe Cook), Widow of Andrew Hull, married Richard Beach. Death date is consistent although it's probably NJ. Birthdate is unknown 1611 and 1620 are close about dates, 1635 is to young to have children in 1642. I also suspect that the parents attached are unproven.
