Richard Church
Birth: Jun. 3, 1608, England
Death: Dec. 27, 1668
Dedham
Norfolk County
Massachusetts, USA

Born about 1608 (deposed 27 Apr 1657 aged 48 years or thereabouts; deposed 25 Aug 1664 aged about 56 years). Came to Plymouth Colony in 1630 as servant to Francis Webb & first settled in Weymouth. Moved to Plymouth in 1631, Eastham in 1649, Charlestown by 1652, and finally Hingham in 1654. Died in Dedham 26 December 1668, probably on a visit to his son Caleb. In his will, written the day before his death, he calls himself of Hingham, but the witnesses are all of Dedham.
Married by 7 March 1636/7 (and probably by 14 March 1635/6), Elizabeth Warren, daughter of RICHARD WARREN. She died in Hingham 9 March 1669/70.
Their ten children: Elizabeth Hobart, Joseph, Benjamin, Nathaniel, Charles, Caleb, Abigail Thaxter, Sarah Burroughs, Mary, & Deborah.
"He died in Dedham where he was on a visit, his demise taking place "Sabbath day erly in the morning," and is buried in Hingham at a spot which is covered now by the highway leading to the Old Steamboat Wharf, and near the water. (Letter of Mrs. Henrietta Church Dunham.)"
