Hi Vic,

You may find out quite a bit about Richard if you send for the records of his trial.

I have done this a few times at the county records office where the trial took place and received copies of the trial documents.
It was a few years back, but I imagine they would still be available.
The documents can reveal quite a bit of information about the family and life of the accused.

Worth a try at least.

Cheers
Geoff
