- Isaac Richardson lived on "Richardson's Row," in the easterly part of Woburn,
and about half a mile, more or less, from the present village of Winchester.
His farm adjoined that of the second Ezekiel Richard, son of Theophilus. His
will dated 28 February 1688/1689, recorded Middleton Probate Record, vii 11,
mentions wife Deborah, son Jonathan, then under twenty-one years of age, sons
Edward, Joseph, Benjamin, and David, all minors, and daughters Mary and
Elizabeth. "Two eldest sisters" are mentioned, to whom Jonathan, the eldest
son, was to pay ten pounds each when they came of age. their names do not
appear in this connection, but they must have been Mary and Phebe. the
testator disposes of other land, and a house then building, besides the
homestead. He had a lot near "bare hill" -- more correctly Bear Hill -- in
Charlestown, afterwards included in Stonham. Samuel Richardson , Stephen
Richardson , and Thomas Fuller, his brother-in-law, sign as witnesses.
