Richard Randolph died in Bath, England, where he had gone due to bad health. [1]

of Curles (Neck) Plantation Henrico County.

Married Jane Bolling, a descendant of Pocahontas.

Grandfather of Congressman John Randolph of Roanoke.

Owner of huge plantations in Henrico Co. Va. along the James River.

Member of Virginia House of Burgesses, elected in 1740, Henrico Co. Va.

Treasurer of Virginia, 1736 - 1738.

Married Jane Bolling, great-grandaughter of Pocahontas.

In his will, which still exists today, he left over 40,000 acres to his sons Richard, Bret, Ryland, and John.

June 1, 1738, Captain James Straghan "entered the Upper District of the James River from London and Guinea... with 380 negroes consigned to Isham a nd Richard Randolph" aboard the ship 'Anna.' [2]

From: "Descendants of William Randolph of Turkey Island":

"Wyndham Robertson Says Richard Randolph, Sr. and Jane Bolling had nine ( 9) children, five boys and four girls. From various sources eight of these have been identified. One girl remained unidentified but now, Era Morgan Davis reports that Bodie, IX, page 194 identifies this girl as Frances."

Ethel Koger states:

"Richard Randolph and Jane Bolling were parents of four girls and five boys. Frances was the eldest born about 1722, she married (1) John Jones,was widowed and then married (2) Joel Halbert. ----------------------------------

1737: At a vestry meeting held at Curl's Church for Henrico Parish, there were present Richard Randolph, John Redford, Bowler Cocke, John Bolling, William Fuller, John Povall, John Williamson, Robert Mosby, James Powell Cocke, and James Cocke. At this meeting a resolution passed to build a church after the model of Curl's Church, near Thomas Williamson's..

1739, 20 Dec: At a vestry meeting for Henrico Parish, it was agreed to build a church on the land of Hon. William Bird, Esq. Richard Randolph, Gentleman, was the contractor..

1740, 13 Oct: At a vestry meeting held for Henrico Parish, the following members were present: Richard Randolph, John Redford, Bowler Cocke, John Williamson, William Fuller, gentlemen, vestrymen, and the clerk and church wardens. Richard Randolph read a letter from Hon. William Byrd, Esq., dated 12 Oct, stating that he would be pleased to grant the church an acre to build their church upon, but "there are so many roads already thro' that land that the damage to me would be too great to have another of a mile cut through it. I should be very glad if you would please to think Richmond a proper place... if (the people) will agree to have it there, I will give them two of the best lots that are not taken up, and besides that give them any pine timber they can find on that side of Shockoe Creek, and wood for burning of bricks into the bargain." The vestry voted that the church should be built on the hill called Indian Town, on the south side of Bacon's Branch, at Richmond. This church became old St. John's Church on Church Hill.[3]

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 DNA with Richard:

I think maybe the Richard Randolph reported as died in England (p 17) is this one?
