    • Notes: 
    • The original tombstone for Richard Woodhull is said to have been destroyed by the British in 1777. A new tombstone placed in 1901 gives Richard's death date as 17 OCT 1690, but this is not possible as Richard Woodhull senior conveyed land to his son Richard on 05 APR 1691.

      Richard Woodhull is believed to be a descendant of Sir Nicholas and Elizabeth (Parr) Woodhull, but this apparently remains unproved.
