    • Stephen was a military captain in 1774; a colonel in 1778. At the first outbreak of the Revolution, he took an active and leading part in opposition to the oppressive measures of the British ministry. The town on 6 Dec 1774 established "a superior and an inferior court to hear and determine controversies that had arisen, or might arise in that town." He was chosen as one of the inferior judges. On 19 Mar 1776 he was chosen as a member of the "Committee of Correspondence, Inspection, and Safety." On 22 May 1776 he was one of a committee of five to prepare instructions to the representative of the town. Among other thins, it the representative was told that if the Continental Congress should declare the country independent of Great Britain, he should in behalf of the town, sustain and defend them in so doing. In October 1777, he commanded a company form Attleborough, stationed for one month in Rhode Island. On 12 Jan 1778, Col. Stephen Richardson, his brother, Capt. Caleb Richardson, and five others were chosen to prepare instructions to the representatives of the town, relative to the articles of Confederation. Col. Stephen Richardson and two others were chosen on 2 Aug 1779 as member of the convention to meet at Concord the following October for the purpose of forming a state constitution. He was a representative of the town of Attleborough in 1783 and 1785.
