Death*before 20 June 1695He died before 20 June 1695 at Accomack Co, VA.63 
Court - nam in petit*20 June 1695He was named in a petition that was recorded in court records on 20 June 1695 at Accomack Co, VA. On behalf of himself and his brothers, John Read (oldest son of Henry Read, deceased) petitioned that Mary Read (widow of Henry Read) might be summoned to court to make probation of Read's will, or relinquish it so "care might be taken with ye said estate before it was embezzled or destroyed." The court decided that if Mary Read did not produce the will (if one had been made) at the next court, then administration would be granted to a person that had a right to it.63 
Will - Recorded*18 September 1695Henry's will was recorded on 18 September 1695 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that his will was proved.1 
Survey Hwy replaced*19 September 1695He was replaced as surveyor of the highways on 19 September 1695 at Accomack Co, VA. Henry Read, a surveyor of the highways, died. Appointed surveyor in his place, Mr. Thomas Bud was ordered to keep the highways cleared and the bridges in repair.71 
Court - named in ord17 June 1696He was named in a court order on 17 June 1696 at Accomack Co, VA. John Read (guardian of Richard Read) brought action against Mary (executrix of Henry Read, deceased) and declared that in the will of William Stevens (deceased) Richard Read had been bequeathed the following items: a large iron pot, large iron kettle, a small iron pot, a brass kettle "cast and not hammered work", a bell metal mortar, brass pestle, feather bed and bedding, "that bed which was my mother's", a large chest, pair of iron dogs [andirons] at Capt. Foxcroft's, a chest, a gun, all his books of "chyrurgerie" [surgery], "one Negro woman with all her increase to be purchased out of ye tobacco due to him in Somerset County", his "small styllyards" and his pewter. The items were to be divided between Richard and Henry Read, Jr., and, within one month of Stevens' death, to be "marked with their several marks" along with part of the cattle and horses belonging to the estate. Henry Read had been executor of Stevens' will and was therefore possessed of the estate; now Mary Read (the executrix of the estate of her husband Henry Read) refused to deliver the legacies. The court considered the case and found that Henry Read had failed to turn in an inventory of Stevens' estate; he also failed to give the legacies to Richard Read. Likewise, Mary Read had not turned in an inventory of her husband's estate. Ordered that Mary deliver all the legacies that Stevens had given to Richard Read, with execution on the order respited till the next court at which time Mary was to give a true account of the Read estate under oath.
Henry Read brought an action against Mary Read (executor of the estate of Henry Read, Sr.) declaring that Wm. Stevens (deceased) in his will left Henry a feather bed and bedding, brass mortar, his biggest iron pot, a small iron kettle "which had one leg put in", and an equal share of the cattle and horses that were to be divided among the children of Henry Read. As in the above complaint, Mary Read refused to deliver the legacies. The court heard all the pleas and ordered Mary to deliver all the legacies that Stevens had given to Henry Read, Jr. Execution on the order was delayed till the next court, when Mary was to give an account of the estate of Henry Read.72

Court - namd in suit*19 December 1695He was named in a lawsuit on 19 December 1695 at Accomack Co, VA. The action brought by John Read (as guardian of Richard Read) against Mary Read (executrix of Hen. Read, deceased) was referred to the next court.5 
Court - named in ord*17 June 1696He was named in a court order on 17 June 1696 at Accomack Co, VA. John Read (guardian of Richard Read) brought action against Mary (executrix of Henry Read, deceased) and declared that in the will of William Stevens (deceased) Richard Read had been bequeathed the following items: a large iron pot, large iron kettle, a small iron pot, a brass kettle "cast and not hammered work", a bell metal mortar, brass pestle, feather bed and bedding, "that bed which was my mother's", a large chest, pair of iron dogs [andirons] at Capt. Foxcroft's, a chest, a gun, all his books of "chyrurgerie" [surgery], "one Negro woman with all her increase to be purchased out of ye tobacco due to him in Somerset County", his "small styllyards" and his pewter. The items were to be divided between Richard and Henry Read, Jr., and, within one month of Stevens' death, to be "marked with their several marks" along with part of the cattle and horses belonging to the estate. Henry Read had been executor of Stevens' will and was therefore possessed of the estate; now Mary Read (the executrix of the estate of her husband Henry Read) refused to deliver the legacies. The court considered the case and found that Henry Read had failed to turn in an inventory of Stevens' estate; he also failed to give the legacies to Richard Read. Likewise, Mary Read had not turned in an inventory of her husband's estate. Ordered that Mary deliver all the legacies that Stevens had given to Richard Read, with execution on the order respited till the next court at which time Mary was to give a true account of the Read estate under oath.
Henry Read brought an action against Mary Read (executor of the estate of Henry Read, Sr.) declaring that Wm. Stevens (deceased) in his will left Henry a feather bed and bedding, brass mortar, his biggest iron pot, a small iron kettle "which had one leg put in", and an equal share of the cattle and horses that were to be divided among the children of Henry Read. As in the above complaint, Mary Read refused to deliver the legacies. The court heard all the pleas and ordered Mary to deliver all the legacies that Stevens had given to Henry Read, Jr. Execution on the order was delayed till the next court, when Mary was to give an account of the estate of Henry Read.6 
Marriage*before 11 November 1730He married Tabitha (of Peter I) Rogers, daughter of Peter (of Jno I) Rogers I and Sisela 'Sissoly' (-----), before 11 November 1730 at Accomack Co, VA.1,7 
Est Settm't Bro's*6 August 1734Richard (of Hy Sr) Read Sr. was named in the settlement of his brother's estate on 6 August 1734 at Accomack Co, VA. Upon the motion of Richard Read, he was granted administration of the estate of Henry Read, deceased. Richard Read Sr., Jonathan Garrison, Jonathan Rowles and Daniel Rogers, or any three of them, were ordered to inventory and appraise the estate of Henry Read, deceased. [Signed] William Beavans.8

Death*before 29 November 1748He died before 29 November 1748 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that administration on the estate of Richard Read was granted to his widow Tabitha Read with Robert Pitt & John Rowles securities.1 
Deed of Mort name in*27 November 1750He was named in deed of mortgage on 27 November 1750 at tract A36, Pungoteague, Accomack Co, VA. I, Richard Read Junr of Accomack County, Virginia, planter, (or my heirs & Extrs) am held firmly bound to Richard Read Senr, planter, of aforesaid County, (or his heirs & Extrs) for 1,000 pounds current money of Virginia, to be paid to the said Richard Read Senr. Signed 17 Mar 1746/7. The Condition of the above obligation is such that if the above bound Richard Read Junr (or his heirs & Extrs) fulfills the agreement . . . or . . . shall at any time or times when required, sign & deliver a deed of Bill & Sale to Richard Read Senr (or his heirs & Extrs) for 5 shillings cash, (land) to be bounded on the West by Richard Read Junr's land, on the South by Pokomoke Branch, on the North by Henry Custis land, thence extending East for the compliment of 350 acres of land and marsh to be made between Richard Read Junr and Richard Read Senr according to the intent & meaning of the within Condition . . . then this obligation to be void or else to remain in full force. Witt: Edmd Scarburgh Junr & Daniel Rodgers. It was proved in Court on 27 Nov 1750 by the above witnesses. (NOTE: Evidently this 350-acres included the 200 acres left to his uncle James Read and the 150 acres left to his uncle William Read by their father Henry in 1695. They had both died without issue and Richard Junr's father John, the oldest son of Henry, had inherited their land. John died intestate in 1720 and this 350-aces went to his only son Richard Read Junr. Richard Read Senr was evidently Richard Junr's his uncle, who died in 1748 intestate, leaving this document still in force, and thus it was recorded for the benefit of his heirs & Extrs.)10,11 
Est settm't*31 August 1757His estate was settled on 31 August 1757 at Accomack Co, VA. Upshur Teackle, Luke Lucar and James Rodgers (or two of them) were to audit/divide the estate of Richard Read (decd).12
