Caution 3 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 the 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:


Based on historical events his birthdate was between 1618 and 1630, his death was around 25 March 1682, as that is when the court petitioned for part of Judith's estate for her son Richard, the orphan.

Richard Parker married by 1 May 1668 Judith Burton Hunt, widow of William Hunt.[1]




"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. On May 1 1668, he married Mrs. Judith Hunt. He died in Surry Co, leaving one child, Richard II.

If someone wants to add a link to the baptismal record for the rest of us, and explain how they connect this Richard Parker to the baptismal certificate....then, yes, we can add parents.

Any comment on Angelique's request to add Parker-17203 and buller-217 as parents of Parker-91?

Parker-17860 and Parker-91 appear to represent the same person because: clear duplicate
I would like to add Parker-17203 & Buller-217 as parents of Parker-91. They are on his baptismal record.
Parker-2174 and Parker-91 are not ready to be merged because: I need more info before merging.
Parker-2174 and Parker-91 appear to represent the same person because: same wife, needs merge please, please ignore the other wife Judith Williams, she was part of some bad data added in the past few days. I am trying to clean things up.
