He was christened at Headcorn, Co.Kent on Feb 22,1595/6, the son of Matthew Borden and Joan ____ Borden. It is possible that Reeder was Joan's maiden name. The source for her maiden name of Reeder is Thomas Allen Glenn, private publication, 1901, Philadelphia: "Pedigree of Richard Borden: who removed from the County of Kent, Old England, 1637-1638, and Settled at Portsmouth, Rhode Island." This requires further rigorous proof.

He married Joan Fowle at Headcorn, Co.Kent, England on Sept 28,1625.

Children: Richard Borden Jr, Thomas Borden, Francis Borden, Mary Borden Cook, Elizabeth Borden, Matthew Borden, John Borden, Joseph Borden(father of Hope Borden), Sarah Borden Holmes, Samuel Borden, Benjamin Borden, and Amie Borden Richardson.
