Some trees claim that William is the son of James and Margaret (MABON) RICHARDSON
My jury is still out as William clearly states, several times, that he was born Midlem, Bowden, rather than of Morebattle.
This may not disbar him however as it rather looks like his mother Margaret might have been born in Bowden.
The following are just some of William's descendants.
Some of those that may have a direct male line RICHARDSON descendant able to join the RICHARDSON DNA project to see if we get a match with the descendants of James & Margaret (MABON) RICHARDSON, or with the line of Ralph, descendant of William of Pringlestead, or both, are marked on the following chart.
