Anne Richardson, dau. of Amos Richardson and Rachel Yarrington, b. Jan. 4, 1733/4 at Coventry, Conn.

On May 28, 1754 at Coventry, Anne m. 1) as his second wife, Uriah Brigham, youngest child of Elnathan Brigham and Bethiah Ward, b. Nov. 3, 1722 at Mansfield, Conn. He d. Jan. 25, 1777 at Coventry, Conn., Æ 55. They had eight children, who are outlined in their father's memorial.

On Feb. 19, 1783 at Coventry, Conn., as the widow Anne Brigham she m. 2) as his 2nd wife, Samuel Rudd of Norwich, Conn., s. of Jonathan Rudd and Joanna Gregory, b. Sept. 14, 1722 at Norwich. He d. Sept. 22, 1795 at Franklin, Conn. (g.s.) This marriage is proved by Samuel Rudd's will dated Sept. 19, 1793 in which he willed "to Lucia Brigham daughter of my wife Anne £12 out of my personal estate for her service, to be paid out of the personal estate before the third part set out to my said wife." Lucia was Anne (Richardson) Brigham's youngest child, b. at Coventry Nov. 6, 1771. In said will, Anne (Richardson)(Brigham) Rudd received certain lands and her third part of her husband's moveable estate, with distribution thereof made Feb. 17, 1797. There were no children by this second marriage.

Where or when Anne (Richardson)(Brigham) Rudd d. is unknown as there is no vital or church record of her death or known cemetery record by the surname of Rudd. Susan W. Dimick's 1897 published "Coventry Vital Records" cites a Coventry First Church death record of the "widow Brigham" on Aug. 5, 1813, and it has been suggested this was the death of Anne Richardson. However, this church record is more likely for Susanna (Eells) Brigham, the widow of Capt. Thomas Brigham of Coventry, latter Anne Richardson's nephew by marriage (i.e., the son of Uriah Brigham's brother Paul.)
