3. Richard PILAND
was born about 1630. He died in 1695 in Isle of Wight Co, VA. Richard Piland
signed petition against Bacon's Rebellion, 1676.
Bacon's Rebellion was a revolt of Virginia colonists against the
government in 1676. It was headed by Nathaniel Bacon, a prosperous
young planter. The colonists were angry with the governor, Sir
William Berkeley, because he would do nothing to stop Indian raids on
the western settlements. They also charged the governor with waste
and mismanagement of the colony's affairs, and claimed he granted
political favors to his friends and to those of King Charles II.
