[S1] Microfilm of the Dissenters Register of The Protestant Independant Congregation of Billericay, Essex, 1778-1837, content: Baptisms and Burials, (Public Record Office (PRO), Kew, Surrey, England. Reference: RG4 1499). p. 39. “ ... Richard, son of Robert and Susanna Mead born August 5th 1802 ... ”. [ESSNPR].
  2. [S3] Will of Robert Mead, farmer of Great Burstead Grange, dated 22 January 1818, proved 22 September 1819 in the Commissary Court of the Bishop of London. (Essex County Record Office, Wharf Road, Chelmsford, Essex, England. Reference: D/ABW 122/2/63). [WIL0012/DOC0005].
    Richard was not mentioned in his father Robert's will of 1818 so it is almost certain that he died before this date.
