In 1693, he married 1st Hannah ___________. Her last name was thought to be Williams but we have no proof that it was. Hannah died before 31 Oct 1708 when Richard took a 2nd wife, Amey Gibbs. Nothing is known of the background of either of Richard's wives. He inherited the 2 parcels of his father's property in Little Compton which Richard sold, with his mother's consent, on 4 May 1696. In July of that same year, he purchased 100 acres with buildings in Little Compton from his brother-in-law, George Pearce for 100 pounds. Richard died in April or May of 1745. His will written 19 April 1745 was proved 10 June 1745 (recorded at Taunton, Mass., Book 11, pp 1-2). His son Stephen was made executor. The will left to Amey the household goods and a cow. To son Richard, beetle rings, wedges and 5 shillings. To Stephen, all lands, houses, orchards, and husbandry tools provided he maintain his mother and care for her. The 4 daughters were given 5 shillings each plus a share of the money left over from the sale of all livestock (except sheep) after the debts were paid. Two of the grandchildren, Hannah and Richard, children of Richard (4), were to receive a trammel and fire tongs, respectively. the inventory gave a value of 250 pounds for the land and buildings, and 47 pounds, 6 shillings for the personal property, books, and animals. Richard was buried in the burying grounds on his farm in Little Compton. Early tradition says that his wife Amey outlived him by many years. She visited the family cemetery so frequently, she wore a pathway to the graves. That path became known as the Amey Hart Path.

He was born about 1635, probably in England, and resided most of his life in Portsmouth, RI. In his younger days he was reported to have been a leather dresser but he later became a mariner. On 10 Dec 1657, he was granted 8 acres of land in Portsmouth. the land records of Portsmouth show Richard purchased 3 acres there between the beach of the great cove and the Pocasett River on 16 Dec 1659, and 2 parcels of land amounting to 8 acres from Rebecca Cornell on 30 Apr 1661. One of the parcels was bounded on the north by his father's land, which Richard bought from his mother in 1683. The record called him a leather dresser of Portsmouth. He married Hannah _______ sometime before 1664. Her name was perhaps Keene since the administration of Richard's estate was granted 4 Feb 1694/1695 to kinsman Patrick Keene of Newport, RI (recorded at Suffolk County, MA, Book 13, p. 597). Richard was a seaman on the sloop Dragon commanded by Robert Glover when he was lost at sea during a storm near Boston in Jan. 1694/1695. Hanna was still living May 1696 but we do not know when she died.

The widow's petition was mad through John Cotton. The Savage Genealogy says: Nicholas Hart was of Taunton, Mass., 1642, and was excommuned there and came to Boston, Mass., 1643; remained there to 1648, and at Warwick, RI; after 1648 a merchant. Nicholas Hart was a Continental soldier in William Pool's company, 1643; he married Joana Rossiter, youngest daughter of Edward Rossiter of RI, who came from London, England with, and was an assistant to, Governor John Winthrop of Massachusetts, who was chosen at London, England in 1629 and came to America in the spring of 1630. Edward Rossiter died 30 oct 1630 at Warwick,RI, as supposed.

There are no records of Nicholas Hart's or his wife's death. In Henry Water's 'Gleanings of Wills in England,' book 2, pages 1397-1398, is a will of 'William Harte of the Parish of St. Thomas the Apostle, London, Eng., Merchant, Tailor, 17th of May, 1632, proved 23 May 1632. To wife Mary. To oldest son, John Harte, provided otherwise in Lands. To daughter, Margaret Hartt. My wife shall have the bringing up of my said children. To my Uncle, Edmund Wilson, Dr. of Physic.

To my Uncle, William Tayler, dwelling in Pater Noster Row, London, Eng To my brother Mr. Thomas Somers, and Francis Tayler, etc.' Nicholas Hart is supposed to be the son of the Richard Hartt named in above will, who probably lived in London. Nicholas settled in Warwick RI as shown by the Austin Genealogy of the first 3 generations which says Nicholas Hart of Warwick RI left one son only: Richard b. probably in London, Eng about 1635.. -------------------------------------------- From 'Our Hart Family' by Virginia Hewitt Watterson (a private printing, Carlsbad, CA, 1989): NICHOLAS HART was born about 1610 in England.

In 1643, he was a soldier in William Pool's Co. of Continentals for protection against Indian attacks.

Nicholas went to live in Boston in 1643. He remained there until 1648 when he moved to the newly established colony at Warwick in Rhode Island. He was listed as an inhabitant of Warwick on a 5 June 1648 roster.

Edward came to New England as an assistant to Governon John Winthrop in the spring of 1630. Joana was born about 1616 in England and probably married Nicholas there. It is supposed that their only child, Richard, was born in England. On 21 May 1651, Nicholas purchased 8 acres and a house in Portsmouth, RI from Ralph Earle. The Harts must have been living there when Nicholas died before 1661. Joana sold a piece of property that year in Taunton, Mass. She sold the 8 acres in Portsmouth to their son Richard on 18 July 1683. John Cotton presented a petition to the Mass. authorities for a grant of 500 acres to Mrs. Joana Hart, the youngest surviving child of the late Mr. Edward Rossiter. The grant was made 4 Jun 1685. Joana died 9 Jun 1691, age 75 years, at Plymouth, Mass.
