    • CONFLICT: Birth year 1613 or 1630 ?

      BIOGRAPHY: Richard Case was not as early a settler at Hartford as many others, but he did live there by the 1660's.[1] He removed from there to East Hartford in 1669 where he was made freeman in 1671. Richard Case was perhaps a brother to Henry, John, Thomas, and William, although no document has yet been discovered to prove such. Richard and John were both residents of Hartford County and all pertinent names in the first two generations of Richard's family reappear in John's. Richard Married Elizabeth Purchase, daughter of John Purchase, an early settler of Hartford, as noted in John Winthrop's medical journal for the year 1663. This marriage is further proven by Richard Case's receipting to Nicholas Palmer for Palmer's step daughter, Elizabeth Purchase, dated Dec 17, 1663. On May 1 1675 the said Nicholas Palmer made further payments in land to Richard Case in accordance with promises which he had made to his (Palmer's)[6] wife Joan at their marriage. The marriage of Nikolas Palmer to Jane Purkas is recorded at Hartford on Oct. 29, 1646.(notice the misspellings of their names.dl) Her first husband, John Purchase, died in Hartford in 1645 leaving widow Joan and daughters Mary and Elizabeth. The older daughter married Jerrett Speck who also receipted to Nicholas Palmer on behalf of his wife, the date being Nov. 26, 1663.[5]

      BIOGRAPHY: Richard Case was appointed town crier of Wethersfield, CT on March 22 1666/1667, and on Feb. 17, 1669/1670 he bought land from William Edwards.[5] Richard died at East Hartford on March 30, 1694, leaving a will dated Sept. 8, 1690 in which he describes himself as 'of Hartford' and names his wife Elizabeth, her father Purchase, and three minor children, Richard, John and Mary. He also willed that his wife Elizabeth and "kinsman" Thomas Olcott to be executors. The court appointed Thomas Olcott and Mr. William Pitkin, Jr. overseers to assist the widow by their advice in April 1694. Inventory taken on the estate April 2, 1694 amounted to 203.2.6[7] Thomas Olcott was born in London. His mother was Margaret Charlfount, who also emigrated to Connecticut, and his sister was Mary, wife of Robert Hardy.[9] No definitive connection has yet been found with Richard Case. (Why is 'her father Purchase' mentioned in this will if he had already died and she had Nicholas Palmer as a step father?dl)
