    Richard (Jaques); m. Jan. 18, 1681, Ruth Plummer. He took the Oath of Allegiance in 1676, aged 22. He was drowned May 28, 1683 (town record), but in the inventory of his estate it says that he died June 22, 1683. The first date is correct as on that day a jury of inquest found that Richard Jakwish, tired and weary with washing sheep, jumped into the river to save a man who was beyond his depth, "sank and rose no more." (Quarterly Court of Essex County.) He left a small estate. (Essex Probate, 304:35.)
