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]
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 (Burton) Hunt, widow of William Hunt, before August 20th, 1668 when Judith is shown in the probate records as Judith Parker on her late husband's estate.
"The Heritage of Union County, North Carolina 1992" submitted by Charles M Parker. Richard Parker I (1618-1617) was granted 314 acres of land in Surry Co VA as headrights on December 20, 1670.
Richard passed away before 4 Jul 1677, when administration on his estate was granted to Judith.

However, there are no known yDNA or mtDNA test-takers in his direct paternal or maternal line.
It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage of DNA with Richard:
