Richard was churchwarden in 1684-5 and paid rates from 1681-6. The Richard and George who received relief (+ stockings and shoes) in 1687 may have been his children (or John's). They received this relief again in 1688 and '89 in which latter year George was taken in by Robert Barnard and Richard by Edward Jacklett. In 1687 the rates were paid by John Hiett and his neighbour (looking after George) was Robert Barnard. From 1688 the rate was paid jointly by Robert Burnard and John Hiett until 1695 when it was just John Heiat again up to 1700 when he emigrated to America. All this time the adjoining property was was 'late John Hiett deceased' [see (3)]. In 1703 Richard Heiatt becomes a rate payer but on a different property and was there until 1707. Probably the Richard Hiatt who was in Kingweston in 1715.

In 1687 the Overseers 'charged for the relief of Richard Hieatte & George Hieatte 1 8s, paid for a peare of shoose for Richard Hieatte 1s 10d for a peare of stockens for George Hieatte 7d and a peare of drawers for Richard Hieatte 1s 4d. In 1688 they paid for britches, shoes, stockings and mending clothes of the Heyat children plus 53 weeks relief for Richard and George. In 1689 They paid Robert Barnard for George Heiates relife 1s 6d a weake for 50 weakes and Edward Jacklett for Richard Hieates relief 1s 6d a weake for 5 weakes.They also paid Thomas Jacklett 1 10s for clothes for Richard Hieatte when he was bound out to him. In 1690 the Overseers paid 45 weeks relief at 1s 6d per week for George Hiatt and bought him a pair of drawers for 2s 4d. See Overseers accounts p. 45 for the conditions of the Poor receiving relief they had to wear clothes of a distinguishable type that bore two red letters PB either on their arms or backs, standing for Parish of Butleigh!
