William Randolph's parents were Richard and Elizabeth Ryland Randolph and his grandfather was William Randolph of Sussex, England.

"Edward lived in England and was Captain of a ship captivated at a launch at Gravesend. Miss Graves, and heiress of 10,000 whom he married. Older member of family, contemporary with his grandmother who was a granddaughter of Mrs. Randolph said Grosvener Square (in London) was associated with Mrs. Randolph's name, and an old aunt, a childless widow and the repository of all family tradition and heirlooms, and an almost daily companion for 50 years, urged the giving of this name Grosvener to the writer's (Bishop Meade) youngest brother to preserve it in family history. She always spoke of Mrs. Randolph as an heiress, and either a Quakeress or of Quaker sympathies and so much opposed to negro slaves that she never came to Virginia."
