Richard was a Sizar (undergraduate student) of St. Catherine's Easter, Cambridge University, from 1621 to 1624. He is acknowledged by many as the founder of Presbyterianism in America. He was a deacon at Peterborough, 9th of March, 1622/23 and became a priest the 8th of June, 1623. He was the Curate of Coley Chapel, Halifax, England, for some years before going to New England around 1635. He came to America from North Owram, Halifax Parish, West Ridings, Yorkshire, England, on the ship "James" (No ship record has been discovered. Some sources say the ship was The Arabella). -from The New England Genealogical Register, 11/241

The famous preacher, Cotton Mather, born in 1663, speaks of Rev. Denton in his early memoirs: "Rev. Denton was a highly religious man with strong Presbyterian beliefs. He was a small man with only one eye, but in the pulpit he could sway a congregation like he was nine feet tall."

From naratives of New Netherland, 1609 to 1664, in a letter dated October 22, 1657, Johannes Megapolensis and Samuel Drisius write: "Mr. Richard Denton, who is sound in faith, of a friendly disposition, and beloved by all, cannot be induced by us to remain, although we have earnestly tried to do this in various ways. He first went to Virginia to seek a situation, complaining of lack of salary, and that he was getting in debt, but he has returned thence. He is now fully resolved to go to Old England, because of his wife who is sickly will not go without him, and there is need of their going there on account of a legacy of four hundred pounds sterling lately left by a deceased friend, and which they cannot obtain except by their personal presence."

The history of Hempstead, Long Island makes many references to the Dentons and their marriages and big families. The men were active in the local militias fighting the Indians and they developed excellent military experience that prepared them for officer commissions when they moved on to the Virginia frontier.
