He married at Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, England 7 February 1743 ELIZABETH BROWN, who died in childbirth at Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, England about 30 May 1750 (bur. 31 May). He married second at Ampthill, Bedfordshire, England 12 October 1750 ANN CASBURD, who died at Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, England May 1776 (bur. 30 May). He maintained while being married a third relationship with ANN HOLLOWAY, daughter of William and Rachel Holloway, who was born at Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, England about August 1729, was baptized Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, England 8 September 1729, and died at Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, England March 1768 (bur. 30 Mar.). He maintained while being married a fourth relationship as her second with PHEBE RICHARDSON YOXON, daughter of Robert and Sarah (Claridge) Richardson, who was born at Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, England about September 1735, was baptized at Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, England 5 October 1735, and died at Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, England January 1792 (bur 18 Jan.). Phebe Richardson married at Houghton Conquest, Bedfordshire, England 4 December 1757 JOHN YOXON, who was from Amphill, Bedforshire, England. Richard Valentine and Elizabeth Brown had their first two children before they married followed by five more in wedlock. The birth record in the Anglican parish registers of Houghton Conquest for Joseph Valentine clearly states that Joseph was the ‘natural son of Richard Valentine, married man, by Ann Holloway, single woman’. The birth and baptismal records of the other children that Richard Valentine had with Ann Holloway and later Phebe Richardson Yoxon do not state the marital status of the parents although refer to the children as natural born sons or in two cases as bastard sons. There does not appear to have been any children from the marriage of Richard Valentine and Ann Casburd; no births were recorded in either Ampthill or Houghton Conquest.
