    Notes 
    • He served in King Phillip's War in 1675-6 at the time of the Great Swamp Fight, and was one of the soldiers who shared in the Voluntown grant made by the State in 1696. He was probably the Quartermaster for the Connecticut troops. On May 18, 1676, the Colonial Council authorized him to sell arms in his possession in part payment for his services. Minor's Diary, December 15, 1675, says: "Coneticut Armie Set forth from mr. Richardsons," and June, 1676, "Thursday, the 15, wee were to meet all the soldiers at steeven Richardsons house." He was made a freeman in 1679. After his imprisonment by Rhode Island in the summer of 1680, previously referred to, he presented a claim to the General Court for damages. In 1687 he was a representative from Stonington to the General Court.
