Richard Bundick Sr.

Birth*circa 1732Richard was born circa 1732 at Accomack Co, VA. 
Will - Father's*14 April 1751Richard was named in his father's will on 14 April 1751 at Accomack Co, VA. He was shown as son Richard Bundick in the will of George Bundick Jr., wife no name.1 
Biography*Richard Bundick Sr. would have been about 19 years of age when his father died in 1751 and 23 years old in 1755 when his grandparents, George and Elizabeth Bundick, deeded the 100 acres called Robins Hole Swamp to him and his uncle, John Abbott Bundick, for 20 pounds (Acc Co Deeds, 1746-57, p. 543). He would have been about 32 years of age when he inherited the 200 acres from his grandfather George in 1764, land "where he now lives." A survey of this land after his death shows the 200 acres were actually 221 acres (Acc Survey Rec #3, p. 115). It was later to become the eastern part of the present-day Parksley (Whitelaw, p. 1120). The same survey shows that Richard's part of Robins Hole Swamp contained 84 1/2 acres and that it was a separate track located near Guilford. Richard Bundick's name appears on the 1784 tax list and on a survey (Acc Co Survey Rec #1, p. 59) as "Clk." No explanation for this designation after his name has been found. The records have been searched, looking for his appointment as clerk to some office, to no avail. It seems certain it was used to distinguish him from Richard Bundicks of other Accomack Parish areas. In 1784, he owned five slaves, four horses and eleven cattle. He was taxed 3 pounds 11 shillings 3 pence on his real estate and 2 pounds 10 shillings 9 pence on his personal property. By the time the Federal Census was taken in 1800, Richard Bundick Senr was over 45 years of age (actually about 68). He then owned six slaves. Another male in his household was 16 to 26 years of age and the only female was 26 to 45. Richard Bundick had died intestate by 27 Feb 1805 when William Grinalds was named to administer his estate (Acc Co Orders, 1804-05, p. 225). William Grinnalds returned an audit of the estate on 28 Jun 1805 (Acc Co Wills, 1804-06, p. 507), and a division of the personal property was made on the same day (Ibid, p. 508). It is apparent that Richard Bundick's wife was deceased by 1805, for his personal estate was divided between four children, each of whom received 76 pounds 9 shillings 4 pence. On 7 Aug 1805, in a partition suit it was stated that Richard Bundick Sr. was seized of two tracts of land and marsh containing 300 acres in Accomack Parish, and being so seized died intestate on 13 Mar 1805 leaving children, to wit: Nancy Grinnalds, wife of William Grinnalds, Betsy Vessels, wife of Arthur Vessels, and Richard Bundick, and also grandchildren, to wit: Tabitha Taylor, wife of James Taylor, William Bundick, Betsy Bundick, and Sally Bundick, children of one George Bundick, a deceased son Richard Bundick Sr. Tabitha Bundick (Taylor?) appointed guardian of Betsy and Sally Bundick, two of the infant defendants to this suit (Acc Co Land Causes, 1773-1805, p. 317). The lands of Richard Bundick were surveyed on 24 Sep 1805, for a division among his heirs (Acc Co Survey Rec #3, p. 115). The four children of deceased son George Bundick got 20 to 25 acres each, totaling 90 acres. William Grinnalds and wife Nancy got 70 1/2 acres, and Arthur Wessells and wife Betsy received 60 1/2 acres. 84 1/2 additional, separate acres "lying Robins Hole near Guilford," went to Richard Bundick, son of Richard. 
Marriage*circa 1758He married Rachel Saunders, daughter of Solomon Saunders and (-----) (-----), circa 1758 at Accomack Co, VA. Richard Bundick Sr. likely married Rachel Saunders, a granddaughter of Richard Saunders, who died testate in 1759, naming a grandduaghter as Rachel Bundick. (NOTE: Mary Francis Carey worked on the various branches of the Bundick family for years, her mother being a Bundick.)2,3 
Will - Mentioned in*15 December 1768Richard was mentioned in a will on 15 December 1768 at Accomack Co, VA. It was on this date that Justice Bundick named Richard Bundick and Rachel Sandrews(sic) (Saunders) in his will.4
