|Fact||In the 1640’s, Richard Bailey was on of the company that set up the first cloth mill in America.|
|Real Estate||Richard did not receive any land in the first survey of Rowley in 1643. Sometime shortly after the first survey, however, an acre and a half was laid out to him.|
In 1644, he and Richard Holmes purchased the Thomas Harris property, which consisted of 2 acres on Main Street that Harris received in 1639. It was probable that Richard occupied the westerly end of the house, while Richard Holmes occupied the east end. A house built later (known as the Saunders house) stands on the site.
