Richard Glascock, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Richard Glascock might describe his life as follows.

Since few men named Glascock were in 17th Century Virginia, I may have a son of Thomas Glascock. Although my home was at Milford Haven, Gloucester County, about 30 miles down the Rappahannock River from Thomas’ home on what is now Lancaster Creek, I cannot say that he was my father.
In 1691 I received 335 acres in Kingston Parish, Gloucester County, next to Richard Billups and George Billups The document granting me the land required me to put a wooden house on it and cultivate at least 6 acres within 3 years. Since I failed to do that, the governor granted the land to George Billups 2 May 1696. 
Yet I still owned 500 acres in Gloucester County on which I was taxed in 1704.  My name was on the tax ledger just above John Lilley and George Billups.
Marriages and births of many of my descendants are in the register of Kingston Parish. Yet since the records in the county clerk’s office burned, no one can say just how they are related to me.
Billups family records reveal that John Billups, brother to my two neighbors of this name, married Mary Glascock in 1695. Since I was the only Glascock in the county, she had to have been my daughter.

Other than his patent and a single quit rent listing, nothing remains for Richard Glascock, and we have no information about a wife or other children.
