Ancestors and Descendants of Richmond Lineages


Richmond Castle, Yorkshire, England


Welcome to the Richmond Family Ancestry web page!

This site contains information about the ancestors and descendants of John Richmond of Taunton, Massachusetts who immigrated from Wiltshire, England in about 1620 AD.**

We are, however, trying to accumulate information about the many other main branches of the family from England, Scotland, Australia, America and the isles of the sea.

We have the genealogy of the early Richmond family, and interesting information about Richmond Castle , once the ancestral home of the Richmond family. Sections of the book "The Ancestry of Thomas DeMott Walton" (1995) written by Mrs. R. Walton includes information about the early American Richmonds. Mrs. Walton researched the Richmond family name for 25 years.

At present, our reproduction of the first 4 generations of Joshua Bailey Richmond's book the Richmond Family are available. We plan to finish the remaining generations of book in the coming months. We are also currently working to provide an interactive descendancy pedigree of JB's book. We currently have the best interactive pedigree and family group sheets on the Internet. JB's book will be a separate database, but in the same user-friendly format.

Richmond Family Highlights is a new page to highlight an interesting Richmond family. Periodically, the page will feature a new Richmond family to help you with your Richmond research needs. If you would like to contribute to Richmond Highlights, contact us.

Don't forget about our "Did You Know" page which brings to light interesting facts about the Richmond name, Richmond places and stories.

We are now hosting the Richmond Family Contact Database. This database contains contact information about Richmond family researchers, as well as their area(s) of interest.

Therefore, we've decided to start a virtual Richmond Family Cemetery to share and preserve the gravestones of our progenitors. If you have a Richmond gravestone photograph you would like to post at our web site please click here to learn how to submit your images.

HELP NEEDED - Richmonds,

Many of us who are descendants of Hiram Richmond (born 1800 in New York) and Betsey Martin (born 1798 in New York) and who is the son of Gideon Richmond (born 1771 in Taunton, Mass.) and Rebecca (Hannah) Whitney (born 1768 Goshen, Mass.) use Joshua Bailey Richmond’s book “The Richmond Family” to make the lineage connection. However, some genealogical societies are not accepting JBR’s book as “proof” of the Gideon-Hiram connection. Does anyone have access to Gideon Richmond’s will, land deeds, tax records or anything that would help build the case that Hiram is indeed the son of Gideon and Hannah (Whitney) Richmond. Any help would be greatly appreciated. . .
