Biography

Some think that Richard Nason came from Stratford-on-Avon, where there were many of his name at that time and where Nasons still are found. A Richard Nason was bapt. at Stratford-on-Avon, 3 Aug. 1606. He was son of John Nason, who married Elizabeth Rogers 28 Oct 1600. Other than the similarity of names and the fact that the birth year works out, I can find no other evidence that they are the same person.
The name of his first wife was Sarah, and the fact that she had children named John and Baker, as well as the incident mentioned below, suggests that she was of the Baker family. Nason's second wife was Abigail, widow of Nicholas Follet.
Richard Nason was living at Pipe Stave Landing in 1639 where he had a 200 acre grant of land and ran an ordinary.

In 1645 John Baker was presented at Court in New Hampshire "for beating Richard Nason that he was black and blue and for throwing a fire shovel at his wife." Baker was fined five shillings.[1]

"A militant Quaker, he was constantly in difficulty after Massachusetts took over the government. In 1653 he was disenfranchised for entertaining traveling Quakers, and in 1655, charged with blasphemy, he was in danger of losing his life, but the General Court decided that he was not so guilty that he ought to die. He was placed under a bond of £40 for good behavior.[2]

“On 5 July 1670 at a session of the York County Court held at Wells…

We present Richard Nayson for not frequenting of the place of God’s public worship on the Lord’s Day. Ric Nayson owned in Court that he attended the public meetings which went by the name of Quakers’ meeting. Tho Wells, William Love.”

He was elected a member of the General Court in 1656 but, the court refused to allow him to attend and the persons who elected him were censured for electing him.[4] In 1666 he signed a petition to the King to appoint a stable government free of "Bostoners".[5] He was in court in 1655, 1663, 1670, 1671, 1675, and in 1685 for being absent from meeting. In 1678 he was charged with being abusive towards the officers.

He was rejected as a selectman in 1669.
