    it is reported that Richmond was well established in the area of Hanover that became Louisa in 1742. In 1748, Richmond Terrell of Louisa, planter, made a deed to Bartelott Anderson of Hanover, attorney-at-law. Numerous internet sources reference the instant Richmond as 'The Duke'. The instant Richmond is believed to be the Richmond who purchased 260 acres in St. Martin's Parish of Louisa County, Virginia on the north side of the Little River near the lands of John Whatley and Samuel Goodman. The home that Richmond and Ann built stood on the east side of present (1993) Route 701 between Bumpass and the Hanover County line. The instant Richmond inherited land from his father, Richmond, who in turn had been granted the land from his father Richmond. The land was located on the Little River in Louisa County, Virginia. In 1753, Richmond verified that an estate was divided correctly pursuant ot an order of the Louisa Court at the September Court of 1753. (ref: Louisa County, Virginia Deed Book C 1759-1774, p. 5, R929.3 Davis, Abstracted & compiled by Rosalie Edith Davis, 1977. See p. 34.) On 4 August 1763, Richmond witnessed an indenture between George Pettus and John Austin. It was subsequently proved by Richmond's oath on 8 November 1763 in Louisa County. (ref: Louisa County, Virginia Deed Book C 1759-1774, pp. 237-240, R929.3 Davis, Abstracted & compiled by Rosalie Edith Davis, 1977. See p. 30-31. - NB21).

    In his will of 1764, Richmond described his home place as "all the lands I bought of Richard Thurman and John Taite and all if bought of Nathl. and Wm. Dickenson and the upper part of the Land I bought of James Sims and in case my wife should marry again ... a straight line shall be run from the River against John Taits Plantation to Dukes Line leaving the quarter the great Kitchen and the Apple Orchard on one side and the Dwelling House and the rest of the Plantation and Simses Orchard and part of the Simses plantation on the other side ...." Details of Richmonds home as of 1933 were part of the WPA records held at the Virginia State Archives. It was styled as not a largehome, a story-and-a-half frame structure, whith shed rooms on the east end. Originally it is reported to have had two chimneys and contained ten windows of small hand-blown glass panes. The six-panel doors were of pine and had HL hinges. Neighbors familiar with the home also remembered a front porch. The first floor contained two rooms connected by a ten-foot hallway and the west room seems to have served as parlor with a pine mantelpiece 9 feet high by 8 1/2 feed wide with fluted carving extending to the ceiling. The east room was similar, with some one story shed rooms probably used as additional bedrooms. These rooms were heated by the chimney. A small, winding, semi-enclosed stairway led from the hall to the attic. This house and the land on which it sat remained in the Terrell family for many years. (ref: Louisa Records: D.B. No. 'A', p. 145)

    In the last ten years of his life, Richmond owned a water grist mill on the north side of the the Little River, west of present (1993) route 701. It along with Richmonds 600 acres were sold to Richard Dabney by Richmond's son Samuel in 1783. As of 1993, the only trace of this site was the old mill pond and dam.

    Richmond's will named his daughters, Eliza Harris, Anne Terrell, Mary Overton Terrell and Babary Terrell; his sons Richard Terrell, James Terrell, William Terrell, Richmond Terrell, Samuel Terell and his beloved wife Ann Terrell, and his friend James Overton. The executors: David Cosby, David Anderson. Witnesses John Townes, Eliza Cosby Richard Allen, Dorcas Allen, Chas. Cosby, John Tait, Jon Jones and John Gills. Richmond's will mentions several dependencies to his above described home which included 'the Quarter' and 'the Great Kitchen' On 26 September 1770, a land transaction between Cleavers Duke and Crosby Duke was "bounded by the lands belonging to ... the estate of Richmond Terrell, deceased." (ref: Louisa County, Virginia Deed Book D 11/2 1759-1774, pp. 249-250, R929.3 Davis, Abstracted & compiled by Rosalie Edith Davis, 1977. See p. 115. - NB21)
