Richard Randolph was the son of William Randolph and Mary Isham Randolph of Turkey Island. The subject is identified by family tradition, though he died in 1748/9 before John Wollaston arrived in Virginia. The face bears strong affinity to Wollaston’s other portraits. It is possible that this was a copy after an original portrait or a post-mortem portrait.
