Registration of Births, Marriages
and Deaths began in Scotland on 1st January 1855.
The General Register Office for Scotland www.gro-scotland.gov.uk/
GROS - Family Records www.gro-scotland.gov.uk/grosweb/grosweb.nsf/pages/famrec
Therefore, before 1855 it is increasingly difficult to trace family names since it was not done except by those of some standing in the community and all the records of consequence would be within the various parish churches.
- W5 suggests that since so many of the Richardsons have served in the army, it is possible W1 served and since the geographic location is close to Coldstream W1 might very well have served in the famous British Regiment "Coldstream Guards"
- if W2 was born in 1828
in Scotland, then we can guess that if W1 served in the Coldstream Guards,
it would have been approx. between 1815-1830
Tim emailed June 29th, 2003 Archives.email@example.com which is the contact for the Coldstream Guards
|- W5 suggests that if W1
was not with the Coldstream Guards, he might have been with The King's
Own Scottish Borderers
Tim checked the WWW and found http://www.kosb.co.uk/

|searched http://www.documentsonline.pro.gov.uk for William Richardson 1790- found many records but none related to Horndean or Berwickshire|
|If W2 was a mason in Kingston,
chances are his father was a mason in Berwickshire

was a vast increase in the amount of dancing done in Scotland, until by

"Most dancing masters would have played the violin or kit, so that they could demonstrate the steps to the dances with the music."
Mary Anne Alburger, Scottish Fiddlers and their Music
- so maye we should also look for something to do with a fiddle and William Richardson?
checked "dancing master" berwickshire, only 4 hits, nothing there
If he was a Scottish Dancing Master, and not just a Dancing Master, he would have worn a kilt
? this begs the question, what tartan did he wear?

mortcloth index, 1694-1759
"Mortcloths were hired out by the kirk session to cover a coffin, and the mortcloth index for Coldingham parish in Berwickshire covers almost 4000 burials. The index entries give the name of the deceased person, where he or she was living, and extra details"

about a George Richardson, father(maybe) of Margaret, who married William
Elliott. Her sister's names were Jannet and Ellen. The time period for
all this would be around 1800 in Scotland. The Elliotts eventually ended
up in St. Mary Parish, Louisiana. In Scotland they lived in "Parish of
County of Dumfries, North Britian"

Richardson (reg No. 1048) winner of the Victoria
Piper 16th Battalion Manitoba Regiment (Canadian Scottish) C E F.
Born on 25th November 1895 at Bellshill, Lanarkshire, Scotland.
Died on 9th October 1916 at Regina trench, Somme, France.
Memorial at Adanac Military Cemetery, France.
On 8th October, 1916 at Regina trench, Somme, France, the company was held up by very strong wire and came under intense fire. Piper Richardson, who had
obtained permission to play the company 'over-the-top' strode up and down outside the wire playing his pipes, which so inspired the company that the wire was
rushed and the position captured. Later the piper was detailed to take back a wounded comrade and some prisoners, but after preceding some distance he insisted
on turning back to recover its pipes which he had left behind. He was never seen again.
|Mrs. Elizabeth Richardson
was a native of England, having been born October 28, 1817
moved in 1841 to America and in 1849 came across the plains and settled in Sacramento, which was then a tented city.
In the early 1850's she and her husband conducted a hotel on the northwest corner of 10th and K Streets. She was the first owner of the property on which
Turner Hall now stands. Later the couple resided on thier ranch known as Rancho Del Rio, six miles south of this city. In 1882 her husband died and she lived on the ranch until 1853, when she met J. Grundon, a cattleman, and was married. They made a return visit to England, but after the Civil War, came back to reside at Rancho Del Rio. In 1877 her second husband died and she sold the ranch.
In 1878 she married John Richardson, and they built a fine house on Sutter Terrace, where they resided for nearly thirty years. Since the death of her late
husband, Mrs. Richardson has resided with her stepdaughter, Mrs. Leggitt. One of her cherished hopes was that she would live to bee 100 years of age.
The funderal will take place tommorrow afternoon at 2 oclock from the undertaking parlors pf Miller and Skeltom. Friends are invited to the funeral. Interment will be private. http://boards.ancestry.com/mbexec/message/an/surnames.richardson/4207
