Richard2 Waterhouse (Richard1) was born in Portsmouth on April 19, 1674. His first wife, Sarah, was living in 1728 (NH deeds 16:213). Richard's second wife was the much married Elizabeth (Kennard) (Furber) Ditty, daughter of Edward and Elizabeth (Martyn) Kennard and granddaughter of Hon. Richard Martyn, the Chief Justice. Her first husband, also her step-brother, had been Joshua Furber, mariner, of whose estate she rendered an accounting on December 5, 1721. Her second husband, shom she married May 25, 1715, was Francis Ditty, also a mariner, from Wimborne, co. Dorset. Capt. Waterhouse, her third husband, died in 1731, and she was still his widow in 1738 when she deeded to her daughter Sarah Dettey the Martyn-Kennard house (NH deeds 27:295). By April 25, 1739, when she quitclaimed to her step-son Samuel Waterhouse, all interest in his father's estate, she had married, fourthly, Moses Dam of Newington (NH deeds 24:139). In 1693, when he was nineteen, Richard Waterhouse was fined for not attending musters. He became a master mariner and in 1704 was in command of a ship which was captured by a Spanish privateer while on a voyage to England. James Bryant, a member of the crew, was left in Bilboa as a pledge for the ship's ransom and languished in a Spanish jail for two years. Capt. Waterhouse registered his brigantine "Dove," 60 tons, built at Kittery probably in the yard of his Fernald uncles, on January 9, 1707. He served at Fort William and Mary at New Castle from June 28 to July 8, 1708. His buisness appears to have been successful, and he held two slaves when the 1727 tax list was made out. He lived on Doctor's Island in 1703, but in 1709 he bought a house and land on Pickering's Neck, in Portsmouth (NH deeds 18:45). He also bought land from Richard Mills in 1713 and 1714 (NH deeds 18:47, 19:165), and was a proprietor of Barrington in 1725. He had subscribed to Rev. John Emerson's salary in 1713. Administration on the estate of Capt. Richard Waterhouse was granted to his son Capt. Samuel Waterhouse, mariner, June 25, 1731, Hunking Wentworth and Richard Jose signing his bond. The inventory produced an estate of 778. The two sons divided their father's homestead, which provided a house for each, and which was described as "the land fronting easterly on the street leading to the mill-dam over the stone bridge, heretofore called the canoe bridge" (NH probate II:414). Children, baptized 1710-11 Portsmouth: Richard, Samuel, Hannah, Arthur. [ref 46:2-562]
