Second son of Sir William Penn, died in 1673.
I wonder why Dick only warrants this one entry. William Jr., and Pegg get lots of attention.
Since Dick dies at 25, perhaps he wasn't well, despite his apparent health? Where did he stay during the plague? Was he sent away to school like his siblings?
He's buried at the parish-church in Walthamstow, which is dedicated to the Virgin Mary. His memorial reads:
"Richard Penn, Gent. second son of Sr William Penn, Knt, from Rickmersworth, buried Apl 9, 1673; the Lady Penn, Mar. 4, 1681–2."
