      Wiltshire Heritage Museum:
      The Siege of Devizes and the Battle of Roundway Down. An exhibition of original sources and relics.
      Monday, 04 July, 2005
      ...The current exhibition at Wiltshire Heritage Museum brings together for the first time the surviving relics of the battle and the siege of Devizes which preceded it on the days before. Pride of place goes perhaps to a fragment of a cannon found in Devizes Castle. ... Of equal importance is the contemporary portrait of a Devizes man, Richard Pierce, who at a time when the beleaguered defenders were almost without ammunition, sold them gunpowder, which helped to prolong the siege.

      There is a baptism of a Richard Pierce son of Richard Pierce the younger on 19.03.1653 at St John Devizes.
      Possible wife Elizabeth.
      Or Richard Pierce and Mary Kent married St John 15.11.1653. Probably this one.
