Frank Engleheart Richardson was born 1871 (~1873 according to the 1881 census) in Blackheath in Kent.

His parents were Ernest and Augustine Richardson.

In 1891 he was living with his widowed mother in Andrew Villa, Keymer (near Burgess Hill).

At the age of 20 whilst working as a carpenter he married Catherine Edith Randall in the parish church in Brighton on the 13th May 1893. His residence at the time was 15 Polham Square, and his father's name was given as Ernest Murray Richardson, Gentleman, Deceased.  The witnesses were Edward Evans and Alice Charles.

At the time his occupation was listed as a carpenter. He was listed as living at 15 Polham Square, Brighton, and she at 39 Albion Hill, Brighton.

They subsequently had seven children, Mabel, Frank, Violet, Charles, James, Ronald, and Raymond. Five of these are photographed at Catherine's funeral.

His son Frank married Violet Gertrude Strong (a.k.a. Auntie Gert), they are pictured with their nephew Frank Victor Allfrey. It's quite a coincidence (and quite confusing!) that Frank (junior) married a girl with the same name as his sister, but then both the Allfrey's and the Richardson's had more than their fair share of Frank's and Ernest's as well.
