His deeds for this land were, one from John Hutchinson, the other from John Brierly, both originally to Thomas Hough, of Springfield, Burlington county, bearing date 16-6 and conveyed in 1709 to Richard B. Scudder. He died March 14, 1754, aged eighty-three years, twenty years after his wife Hannah, daughter of Joseph Stillwell.

Lieutenant Richard Betts Scudder commanded a section of New Jersey militia in an expedition to Canada in 1711. The commission is in the possession of the family. His name is mentioned frequently in charters, etc., and heads the list of grantees to the land on which the Presbyterian church at Ewing was built.
