Richard Bland (1710-1776), statesman and son of Richard and Elizabeth Randolph Bland of Jordan's Point, represented Prince George County in the House of Burgesses from 1742 to 1776. Between the 1750s and 1774, Bland played a leading role through newspaper articles, public letters, and pamphlets in arguing for Virginia control of its internal political and economic affairs. He was a Virginia delegate to the First and Second Continental Congresses and elected to the Virginia House of Delegates in 1776. Bland died in Williamsburg on 26 Oct. 1776. He was buried in a nearby family cemetery at Jordan's Point.
