In consideration of this undertaking on the part of Isaac, Richard deeded to Isaac "his (Richard's) new mansion or dwelling place" in Concord, consisting of one hundred acres, containing "dwelling house, barn, outhousing, gardens, yards and fencing bounded south by the highway and west by Spencer's brook." The gift included "the fruit of all the apple trees of that place of land which Richard gave to his son Abraham in the old orchard." The conveyance included also his (Isaac's) eighth part in the saw mill near to his (Richard's) house and all his moveable estate." Richard's best love was reserved for his son Abraham. The deed of gift from Richard to Abraham bears date of December 22, 1688. "Divers Considerations moving me, and more particularly my Son Abraham, he being my eldest Son, as also making me a promise to bestow more of his estate upon his two eldest Sons, Richard and Abraham than upon any of the rest of his children ... in regard his (Abraham's) Son, Abraham, doth bear up the name of my father and his Son Richard' bearing up my name." The conveyance to Abraham includes one hundred and twenty acres lying on the north side of the North river and "twelve acres more in my old field." The Edmunds meadow, and two other pieces of four and five acres each are also given to Abraham. He was married to Joanna in 1645. [1]
