It is a family tradition that two
RECORD brothers of this name came
from England ; one settled in
Massachusetts and was the progenitor of the
Records, and the other went to the West In-
dies, accumulated a large fortune and died un-
married. The estate was settled by two sons
of the Massachusetts Record, who went to
the West Indies for that purpose. After set-
tling up the affairs of their deceased uncle,
they repaired to a hotel and remained over
night. In the morning their bodies were found
in bed, but the large sum of money they had
collected had disappeared. This family is of
Massachusetts quality, of good fighting stock,
forty-six of the name serving in the revolu-
tionary army. The name has been spelled
Reckord, Reccord, Recoard, Reckerd and
Rickord. John Record was in Weymouth,
Massachusetts, in 1676. He served in King
Philip's war on the Connecticut river and was
