Caution on Richard Parkers in Virginia

It is believed and mostly proven by researchers that there were 3 men named Richard Parker during the same period of time in Virginia. Our Magna Carta project has determined that the Nansemond and Henrico Co were the same person [Parker-1544]

  • Richard Parker of Nansemond Co., VA.
  • Richard Parker, Dr. of Charles City Co., and Henrico Co., VA
  • Richard Parker of Surry Co., VA

Over the years, many have accidently combined them (see FindaGrave) This profile is intended to represent the Richard Parker that married Judith, the widow of William Hunt. A full explanation of these three men is available at:


Richard Parker married "Judith" before 1 May 1668, the same year her husband William Huntt passed away as Richard filed an administration request in Isle of Wight County, Virginia on May 1, 1668 on behalf of "Judith, Widow Huntt , relict of "William Huntt who died intestate. [1]

RICHARD PARKER died intestate by 4 Sept. 1677 when JUDITH PARKER; his relict, was granted administration on his estate. In the 1677 Tithable Tax she was listed as, "At Mrs, Parker's: JESPER GRANSOME, 1 tithe." In the 1678 tax she was listed as "Mrs. Parker: JESPER GRANSOM & WILLIAM HUNT, 2 tithes." – Administration is granted to Judith Parker on the estate of her deceased husband Richard Parker on 4 July 1677. Security Wm Carpenter and Wm. Nance. Est Bk 2 pg 141 – orders 1671/90 p 144.

JUDITH PARKER died intestate by I July 1679 in Surry Co. when her son WILLIAM HUNT II, was granted administration on her estate.

Known child of Richard Parker and Judith:

Richard Parker Jr. He was listed as an "Orphan" on 25 March 1682 when the Court stated that "half of her thirds was due him. On 4th May 1682, WILLIAM HUNT II, with ARTHUR ALLEN & BENJAMIN HARRISON as securities, gave bond for him to pay RICHARD PARKER, orphan son of RICHARD PARKER, dec'd, a child's part of his "late mother, JUDITH PARKER's, estate when of age."(l0) He was in the 1686 through 1690 Tithable Tax in WILLIAM HUNT, 's household (5) & possibly born after his father's death,
