  • Name Richard MATHER  [1, 2
    • Richard Mather, named after his grandfather Richard Mather, was a farmer, and settled at first in Dorchester, but a few years after his marriage he removed to Lyme, Conn. In the year 1687 he bought a tact of land in Lyme of Hezekiah Usher of Boston. As Mr. Mather died the next year, he could not have done much in his new enterprise. He died on the fifty-third anniversary of the landing of his grandfather in America, which was on the 17th of August 1635.

      Although Mr. Mather died at the age of thirty-five yers, his descendants far outnumber either of the other branches, the Windsor, or Suffield, and many of them have attained eminence in the professions and in business, some of whom will be noticed farther along in the history. [1]
