Richard Hamlin

Origin of the Hamlins in Virginia

Richard was born ca 1670 at Charles City, Virginia. this date is a guess, based on the dates and ages of others in the family.
The Birth Date is a rough estimate. See the text for details.

Briefly, the history of the Hamlins in Virginia began with Stephen Hamlin who patented land at Middle Plantation in 1637.[1] Then 1400 acres in Prince George County were also patented by Stephen.[1] In 1666, when this same land was again patented by a Stephen Hamlin, it was surely his son, and the son was still living in 1696.[1] It seems that Stephen Hamlin Jr. had three sons: William, Captain John, and Richard.[1] Captain John married Elizabeth whose will was proved 23 May 1720 and named son William, (clerk of St. George in 1714), grandson Thomas, daughters Elizabeth, Lucy and Hannah, but there were probably three sons: William, John (sold plantation "Maycocks" in 1723 and married Ann Goodrich), and Richard.[1]


Richard married at Henrico County, Virginia to Ann Harrison, daughter of Thomas Harrison and Elenor (Unknown) Harrison.[1]

  5. Sarah mar Francis Eppes
