Name: Richard Harrold Parents: Richard Harrold, Mary Ann Beals Birth Place: Chester Co, PA Birth Date: 1723 
Richard Harrold does not appear in the list of children born to Richard and Mary Harrold found in the New Garden Monthly Meeting record. There are two children attached to Richard and Mary Harrold (parents above) who do not appear in the record: this Richard and Rebekah, both of which are listing a birth year of 1720 (the New Garden record contains no children born that year).
The one possible clue indicating that Richard may have existed and been part of this family is the Will of Mary Ann Beals' father where four children of Rachel are listed, including Richard, and each is to receive 10 shillings when they come of age. That Will was written 1726 when Richard would have been between 3-6 years of age. It is possible that he did not survive long after this and is thus not found in later records.
The abstract of John Beals' Will includes:
To daughter Mary Harrold 8, she paying to each of heir children, viz Elizabeth, Rachel, Jonathan and Richard 10 shillings when of age. [Note the "8" following Mary Harrold's name appears to be a transcription error.]
