      This Richard was born 8 Oct 1714, in England, second son of John Fawcett (3-3) (Barrister) and Elizabeth Stonehewer, both of Durham, England, according to the LDS Ancestral File. He was baptised in Green Norton, North Hampton. Richard married Elizabeth Brown about 1734 and had six children: John (5-7), Thomas (5-8), Mary (5-9), Dorothy (5-10), Elizabeth (5-11), and David (5-12) (our ancestor) born in England. The family migrated to America about 1850, possibly by way of Pennsylvania, but settling in the Hillsboro region of Orange County, North Carolina. Five more sons: Joseph (5-13), Robert (5-14), John (5-15), Samuel (5-16), and Richard (5-17) were born in North Carolina.

      On 22 October 1768 Richard purchased two tracts of land on the Eno River, containing a mill, from Isaaac Low (or Love) "part of a tract of land granted to John Tinning from James Taylor by deed from Earl Granville bearing date the 14th day of MaMarchl753." He subsequently sold this property to his son, David (5-12) for the sum of 400 pounds on 24 November 1792. The LDS Ancestral File has a death date for Richard of 22 April 1782. This is obviously incorrect. The deed to David was proven in February 1808 "by acknowledgement of Richard Faucett the subscriber thereto," so Richard did not die until after that date. He also sold for twenty pounds, 275 acres of land by deed book 10 page 87, to his sons, Samuel (5-16) and Richard (5-17) on 29 August 1803. This deed allowed Richard (Sr.) "to live on as long as he lives."

      In the 1781 tax list of Orange county, Richard was assessed at 4125 pounds. This ranked him at #8, well up in the list of landholders, one of whom, Alex Mebane, was top with an assessment of 8895 pounds. In the 1800 census of Orange County, North Carolina, Richard "and son" are listed with 10 slaves. The son is probably Richard (5-17). Our Richard was a fairly wealthy man by the standards of the time. Only one Richard Faucett is listed in the Orange County census of 1810. By then, Richard (6-4) had moved to Tennessee and Richard (4-6) had died leaving only Richard (5-17).
