In 1653 he was disenfranchised for entertaining travelling Quakers, and in 1655, charged with blasphemy, he was in danger of losing his life, but the Gen. Ct. decided that he was not so guilty that he ought to die. Elected a Dep. to Gen. Ct. in 1656, he was not allowed to sit and the town was censured for choosing him.

The name of his first wife was Sarah, and the fact that she had children named John and Baker, suggests that she was of the Baker family. Nason's second wife was Abigail, widow of Nicholas Follet. He lived in old age with his son Benjamin. His will, dated 14 July 1694, was probated 15 March 1696-7. His children were all by first marriage. Children: Richard, Jonathan, John, Joseph, Benjamin, Baker, Charles?, Sarah. [ref 33:625]

RICHARD1 NASON emigrated from England or Ireland and was living at Pipe Stave Landing, Kittery, Maine, in 1639. He signed submission to the government of Massachusetts Bay in 1652. He was selectman at Kittery, and held other town offices, and in 1653 was ensign in Captain Shapleigh's company. Among the signatures to a petition to Charles II in 1680 the following names occur: Richard Nason, Benj. Nason, John Nason, Jonathan Nason. Richard Nason's wife was named Sarah, and her maiden name probably was Baker. He married (2nd) Abigail, widow of Nicholas Follett. He died about 1696. His will was probated March 15, 1696. The children of Richard and Sarah Nason are: Benjamin, Jonathan, John, Richard. [ref 64:35]

Nason and Nasson were probably evolved from some old Scandinavian surname. The earliest New Englander of this family of which we make mention was RICHARD NASON, of Kittery, who lived at Newichawannock, and made a peculiar will which was probated Mar. 15, 1696. He was an old man, whose wife had been the widow of one Nicholas Follett, and her son of same name was then at sea. He says he is "penitent from the bottom of his hart" for his sins; wishes his debts "contented and paid"; bequeaths to wife Abigail "the least iron pot which is to say the midleng pot and the least brass cittell, the bruing vessels and cople of washing tubs and spoons and chars." [ref 66:1075]

Richard Nason was living at Pipe Stave Landing in 1639. In 1645 John Baker was presented at Court in New Hampshire "for beating Richard Nason that he was black and blue and for throwing a fire shovel at his wife." Baker was fined five shillings gs.

Some think that Richard Nason came from Stratford-on-Avon, where there were many of his name at that time and where Nasons still are found. A Richard Nason was bapt. at Stratford-on-Avon, 3 Aug. 1606. He was son of John Nason, who married Elizabeth Rogers 28 Oct. 1600. Richard Nason was a planter and often assisted in surveying. He was a juryman in 1649 and was accused of "blasphemy" in 1665. The General Court did "not judge him so guilty of that fact as that by our lawe he ought to die," but put him under bonds of forty pounds for good behavior. Philip Chesley of Oyster River was witness against him. The inhabitants of Kittery showed their opinion of him and of his offense by electing him as Deputy to the General Court the next year, along with Thomas Withers. The Court refused to allow Nason his seat, and the persons who elected him in Kittery were called to an account. He was presented at York in 1655 for not attending meeting, and in 1659 he was fined five pounds and disfranchised for entertaining Quakers. He was ensign in 1653, was selectman and held other town offices. His lot of 200 acres was confirmed to him by the town.
