Since Richard was named in his father John Robinson's will of just 5 years earlier as one of two young son and since his father also mentioned other land in Accomack obtained by patent under the name William Robinson (his then eldest son), perhaps this patent was somehow setup to be in son Richard's name as he may not have been of age in 1666.)4,5
