    Notes 
    • He was godson of Sir Robert Inglis, Bart., M.P., whose whole-length portrait was painted for the Bodleian Gallery, at Oxford, by his father, George Richmond, and exhibited in 1854. Sir Robert Inglis, 1786-1855, Conservative politician, replaced Sir Robert Peel as M.P. for Oxford, 1828-53. [Curtis]
    • Richmond, Harry Inglis. b. 4 Feb 1849, 3rd s. of George Richmond, R.A., of London. Verites, Mar 1862-Dec 1867. Ball., Ox.; B.A. 1872; M.A. 1875. Entered Lincoln's Inn 1872; called to Bar 1875; practised in London 1875-90. d. London 24 Oct 1920. [Charterhouse School Register]
    • Richmond, Harry Inglis. 3s. George, of London, arm., Balliol Coll., matric 27 Jan., 1868, aged 18; B.A. 1872, M.A. 1875, bar.-at-law, Lincoln's Inn, 1875, brother of William B. See Foster's 'Men at the Bar'. [Oxford University Alumni]
    • And there was Inglis, a younger brother of Richmond, an amiable voluble dilettante, with gifts that might have enabled him to distinguish himself in more than one profession but for his incurable indolence and the fact that he had been left a sum of money by a friend of his father's which made it unnecessary for him to work.
      He had indeed been called to the Bar, and for a time was in chambers with William Fothergill Robinson, who told me that a client came to see him one day, and as he was leaving, said to Inglis, 'Oh, by the way, Mr. Richmond, we're sending you a case for opinion ? it's a point on a bill of exchange.'
      'Rweally?' said Inglis, with his engaging lisp, 'That's verwy nice of you,' and added brightly, 'Tell me ? what is a bill of exchange?'
      He was honestly anxious to know, but this was not likely to impress any solicitor with confidence, and I fancy Inglis was as much justified as I was in retiring early from practice.
      He was a brilliant scholar, and great things had been expected of him both at Charterhouse and Oxford, but somehow he had never done them, and had settled down into a pleasant good-natured gossip and connoisseur, with a wonderful talent for mimicry.
      Inglis would give an imitation, for instance, of an old verger showing tourists round a French cathedral which was so lifelike as to have a touch of genius, and that was only one item in his repertoire.
      This and other social qualities made him much in request, and he probably found his life agreeable enough as a rule, though I think there were times when he felt that it was rather a wasted one. I can see him now, a stout short figure, with a twinkle behind his single eye-glass, and a look of an omniscient jackdaw on his round face.

    Notes 
    • About 1826 Richmond fell in love with Julia (1811-1881), the beautiful fourteen-year-old sister of the Tatham brothers, whose father had engaged Richmond to give her drawing lessons. Although old Tatham had encouraged the romance, his diminishing fortune brought a change of mind when a rich and elderly suitor expressed interest in Julia. Learning of this, the young couple - encouraged by Palmer, who loaned Richmond 40 - eloped to Gretna Green, where they were married on 24 January 1831. Back in London, Richmond set up home at 27 Northumberland Street, New Road, sending Julia to stay for the time being with Palmer's father at Shoreham. Meanwhile John Linnell persuaded Tatham that Richmond had a promising future. Tatham forgave them, and within three weeks George and Julia were reunited: their marriage proved to be long and happy. They had fifteen children, of whom ten survived infancy; with this growing family Richmond needed a reliable income, and he spent most of his remaining working life painting portraits. [DNB 2009]
