There is a digitised will for John Retallack RICHARDS, Gent, of Rutherglen, died 13 Nov 1904.

http://210.8.122.120/indexes/index_search.asp?searchid=54

There is no mention of a wife or children. He had property in Rutherglen and a farm in Wodonga.

Bequests are made to:
Thomas Retallack RICHARDS, nephew, of Hokitika, NZ
John RICHARDS, nephew
Helen Shepperd, housekeeper
William RICHARDS, nephew; (son of the late Captain RICHARDS of Beacon, Cornwall)
Ann Brokenshire, sister, of Beacon Cornwall
Jenifer ROBERTS, sister, of Condurrow, Cornwall

Appears possible that he may be an uncle, although the John RICHARDS mentioned in the will is not identified by a middle name, nor by place of residence. :-\

You said you don't know your wife's great grand father's first name  :-\

Death registration for the grandfather given above indicates his name was WILLIAM

Seems to be confirmed by the marriage and births I listed above  :D

thanks very much Raylen

you have done well given me some very useful information to follow up on did not think they would have been listed in NSW thought they all came from victoria

 but i dont think i am connected to the John retallack richard in cornwall that i thought was the connection

will have to look futher into who william Richards  father is could be the nephew mentioned on judiths information  which could connect

because it seems so coincidental that they have have the same names unless william named his son after his uncle 

thanks again for the usefull information
