Biography

Disputed children

An often repeated claim is that immigrants Richard Beach, Thomas Beach and John Beach were children of Thomas Beech and Joan Hill, who had children of all three names. However:

Richard Beech bpt. 25 Feb 1624/5, with three younger siblings would have been born 1622 - 1625. The immigrant Richard Beach was admitted in 1639 in New Haven as freeman and planter. If he were Richard, son of Thomas, he would have been 14-17 in 1639, and as such much to young to be admitted as a free planter. Furthermore, a Richard Beech married Mary Jewell 27 Dec 1647, at St. Albans.[1][2]
