    Richard was of legal age, able to make a legal deed, in 1702. He was therefore born by or before 1681.
    In deeds dated 1728 and 1734, William Meador sold part of the 450 acre tract originally granted to Thomas Meador, Orphan, 1664, through son John, his son Richard, to William.
    Elizabeth White Meador died before the end of 1694. On 10 December 1695, John Meador, anticipating a second marriage, made a deed of gift dividing the bulk of his land among his children: Richard, Thomas, John Jr., and Hope, Rachel, Elizabeth and Esther.
    Terms of Richard's Will [Essex Co. Deeds & Wills Book 14, p. 526]: Plantation where he lived to his wife Ann; eldest son William to inherit the plantation after the death of his mother; youngest son Richard to have the remaining 100 acres of his great-grandfather White's lands on the North side of Hoskins Creek, after the deaths of Esther (Meador) and her husband, William Bourne. If Richard should die, then the 100 acres should go to his youngest sister Addra.
