He was taxed on 6 Sept 1687 in North Kingstown, Rhode Island. Widow Elizabeth Wast of Middleboro was appointed to administer the estate of her husband Richard on 17 Nov 1727. He didn't leave a will. Children Only Charles & Thomas are considered by the Mayflower Society to be proven as a child of Richard.

Biography Her maiden name appears in various forms in the records: Susannah Waist Susannah Wait Susannah West This spelling variation lead some to believe she was the daughter of Samuel Waite. But Ruth Wilder Sherman argues for West after a comparison of earlier records with later published records. From Mayflower Families in Progress: Soule #31 Susanna West, daughter of Francis West and his wife Susanna Soule (daughter of Mayflower immigrant George Soule) was born 1671 or after. The location of her parents at the time of her birth is not clear. She may have been born in Duxbury, Massachusetts or the areas of Kingstown, Rhode Island. Kingstown as a political jusrisdiction did not occur until 1674. An undocumented birth of 23 Oct 1677, Kingstown, Washington, Rhode Island is given in some Ancestry trees. This is undocumented. Her three youngest siblings were recorded in (North) Kingstown, but there is no record of Susanna's birth. Susanna West married 24 March 1691/2, Kingstown, Rhode Island Moses Barber (b.c.1652-before 13 Dec 1733). There was a fire which somewhat destroyed the legibility of the early records. Apparently J. O. Austin interpreted this marriage to Susanna Wait. However, it was later discovered that a copy was made into the South Kingstown records which clearly give her name as Susanna Waist (West). Susanna Barber died between 29 Sept 1755 (date of Will) and 4 April 1758 (will proved in court), in Charlestown, Washington, Rhode Island. Susanna Barber, widow of Charlestown, died testate, having written a will dated 21 September 1755, which was proved 4 April 1758. She makes bequests to daughters Dinah Wilcocks; the heirs of Lyda Mory; Susannah Perry, widow; Martha Parker; Ruth Bently; Marey Teft; Ann Kinyon; and son Benjamin. The will (transcribed from "Charlestown (RI) Probate and Town Council Records, 1738-1916," Volume 1, pages 292-295, on FHL Microfilm 2,319,104) reads: "In the Name of God Amen This 21th Day of September in the 29th year of his Majesties reigne Georg the Second King over Great Briton AD 1755 - I Susannah Barber of Charlestown in Kings County and Colony of Rhodeisland widow Beeing in Helth of body and of Perfect mind & memory Thanks bee Given to almighty God.
