James Richardson1

(say 1770 - after 1812)

BMDB data

     James Richardson was born say 1770 ?Morebattle, ROX, SCT.1
     James Richardson married Margaret Mabon, daughter of John Maibon and Betty Maibon, say 1795 ?Morebattle, ROX.1
     James Richardson died aft. 1812.
     John, Ralph's DNA match, uncovered a mention that he initially interpreted as his Adam (born 1835 NY)'s father was James Richardson of Hamilton Bermuda, assumed to be the 1879 obit which mentions two tailor brothers, and by implication, a third brother, John, in North Georgetown (QUE), and a sister Mrs Sameul Moffatt of Beech Ridge (QUE).
John goes on to also mention having found a death notice of a Thomas Richardson who died in Oneida, NY, in 1880, and who is identified as the brother of the late James Richardson of Hamilton, Bermuda.
There is sufficient information here to indicate that this is the family of James RICHARDSON & Margaret MABON, who had children baptized at the Morebattle Gateshaw sessions: William (1796), John (1797), Elizabeth (1800), James (1802), Thomas (1805), George (1807), Henry (1810), and Margaret (1812).
An Elizabeth Maben RICHARDSON is listed in the Drouin collection records as the relict of Samuel MOFFAT of Beech Ridge.
Further investigation however showed the importance of an "s", as James in Bermuda was the grandfather of Mrs, instead of Mr, W M RICHARDSON. William Meade R. being a relative of John's, and a photographer in Bermuda with two of his brothers in the 1880s before returning to Wisconsin.
Although this relegated John's family's connection to one by marriage, the Morebattle connection of James and Margaret's family is still of interest, as subsequent investigations explored another Morebattle family of RICHARDSONs, that of James and Christian (OUTERSON) RICHARDSON.
They also emigrated, to Quebec, where at the above James' son John was, and where James and Christian's youngest son, Adam, John's ancestor's baptism has finally been found.
This just might be James' second marriage, particularly as the occupation of the James married to Christian is given as tailor on Adam's baptism, as are several of the sons of this James, married to Margaret MABON.

Jan 2013 update:
We now have another dna match. A descendant of James & Margaret (MABON) RICHARDSON's son John is a dna match to both John and Ralph, so the three trees are indeed linked, somehow - those of William of Pringlestead, Eckford, that of James & Christian (OUTERSON) RICHARDSON, and that of James & Margaret (MABON) RICHARDSON. The results to date however indicate that there are two separate James rather than one remarrying Christian some year's after Margaret's death.
Any other direct male line RICHARDSON descendants of any of these trees would still be appreciated to help pinpoint this further.
Go to the Richardson dna project and join.
We would love to hear from you, or any direct male line descendants of any of the other Morebattle trees listed.2,3,4

E. & O. E. Some/most parish records are rather hard to read and names, places hard to interpret, particularly if you are unfamiliar with an area.
