    Notes 
    • Mr Walter Coleridge Richmond, of Vicar's Cross, Chester, who died recently, was born in London in 1852. He was a son of George Richmond, R.A., and Julia, daughter of Charles Heathcote Tatham, the architect, and younger brother of Sir William Richmond, R.A., thus being brought up from his earliest infancy in an atmosphere of art. Some of his first recollections were being introduced by his father to W. M. Thackeray at the National Gallery, and of visits to John Ruskin. Educated at Charterhouse in the sixties before the school was moved to [recte: from] London, and afterwards at Cirencester Agricultural College, he made land agency his profession, his first agency being in Cheshire to Lord de Tabley in 1879, and later to the latter's stepson, Mr. Arthur Hugh Smith-Barry, afterwards Lord Barrymore, for whom he worked for 45 years. He was also agent to the Earl of Strafford and Colonel Dugald Stuart, and at one time made a considerable number of valuations of land for various purposes, this taking him over much of England's most beautiful country.
      Walter Richmond was a man of delightful personality and charm, of undoubted ability, a keen shot and sportsman, being interested in all outdoor life, and useful in his younger days at ball games; his recollections of Lord's cricket ground extended over 70 years. During his whole life he never lost his early love of art and music, and was an able judge of pictures and furniture. He married, in 1894, Clara, eldest daughter of the late Mr. Henry Parker, J.P., of Parkfield, Potter's Bar; she survives him with three sons. [The Times, 21 May 1931]

    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]
