The Duxford Ancestry of the Richardsons and Wymans. Contributed by John B. Threlfall, Madison, Wisconsin.

It has long been known that the brothers John and Francis Wyman, and their uncles Ezekiel, Samuel and Thomas Richardson, all of whom ended up in Woburn, Mass., came from Westmill, Hertfordshire, England. The mother of the Wyman brothers was Elizabeth Richardson. These Richardsons were children of Thomas and Katherine (Duxford) Richardson, also of Westmill. Apparently nothing further has been published on the Duxford family. A recent search of the probate records and parish registers regarding this family reveals the following. Richard Duxford seems to have been the first of the name to appear in Westmill. The name comes from the parish of Duxford in Cambridgeshire which is sixteen miles north-northeast of Westmill and six miles west of Linton. The earliest baptisms in the extant parish register of Westmill start in 1580.
