RICHARDSON, GEORGE F. (?–?). George F. Richardson, early settler, came to Texas before October 1832, when he represented the San Jacinto district in the Convention of 1832. As a member of Stephen F. Austin's fourth colony, he was granted title to land on Rocky Creek in what is now northern Lavaca County on December 17, 1832. In February 1838 he received an additional grant on Mayde Creek, about eighteen miles west of Houston in southwestern Harris County. Richardson was living in Liberty County in October 1847. His home was in Boston, Massachusetts, on March 3, 1855, when he was appointed Texas commissioner of deeds for the state of Massachusetts.
