Richard Fardon - Chapter 17

Chapter 17 ~ P - Richard, son of Richard and Mary


Little is known about Richard, who was a blacksmith and who died in his early sixties almost certainly unmarried.

Richard was born on 17th March 1795 in Ford, Temple Guiting parish. The next "sighting" was in 1851, when the census showed him living with his half-brother James and family at Toddington. Both were listed as blacksmiths, and it is thus probable that he was working with James. He was aged 58 and unmarried. He died in 1856.
