Christopher Richardson of Mouswald
« on: Sunday 05 March 17 18:51 GMT (UK) »
I am searching for Christopher Richardson, father of Robert Richardson 1807 and Jacob Richardson 1804, his wife is recorded as Diana Tod but I haven't been able to find a marriage on either Familysearch or Scotland's People.

In 1851 Christopher was living in Annan with his daughter Mary Irving (I haven't found her baptism either), she was a widow born Cummertrees.

I found Christopher Richardson baptised Mouswald 7 June 1768 son of John Richardson and Janet Dickson but I can't find Diana

Thank you, the certificate is very informative and confirms that he is the son of John & Janet.  It also listed all of his children!

I am still stuck with Diana though.

There is a Christopher Richardson buried in Annan old cemetery I am sure it is the Christopher Richardson you are looking for.  I have done some research myself on him and Jacob.  Christopher was married to Deana Todd.  Gravestone reads

Christopher Richardson, Carrier in Annan d. 16 Oct 1853 age 87 als Deana Todd his wife d. 12 Jan 1829 age 54, Margaret their daughter d. 3 Mar 1821 age 10 yrs , John their son d. 10 Oct 1831 age 31 and David their son d. 16 Aug 1833 age 19 yrs also their son James Richardson, shoe maker d. 16 Feb 1880 age 79 and Bridget Birrel his spouse d. 24 jan 1847 age 43 yrs also Mary Tood their daughter who d. 5 Jul 1843 14 mo. In loving memory of our Dear Mother Ann Morton d. at Carlisle 26 Jan 1899 age 56 yrs Also Dinah daughter of above James Richardson d. 16 Aug 1910 age 75 yrs
(This is all on the same stone)
