Thanks for all this.
It looks like John and Jane were not siblings, then.
I would say her father was probably the Innkeeper of the Rose and Thistle but will keep looking.

Historical Directories (on line)

The 1842 Directory of Leeds & the Clothing Trade, 1842, lists 8 John/Jno Richardsons. It includes a John Richardson, Victualler, Rose & Thistle, Nevile St and a Jno Richardson, b.hs, 4 Lwr Tempar St.

Was Jane at Templar St in the '41 Census (ref HO107  1346  8/13  19)?
Thank you for this.
Have just been looking at the directory and Yes, Jane was at Templar Street on the 1841 census! Unfortunately, no house number given.
Just to throw a spanner in the works, though, there was also a John Richardson down the road on Vicar Street who was a Straw Hat Manufacturer. The Jane Richasrdson who married Edwin was a Straw Bonnet maker!
I wonder if the Richardsons could have owned several businesses with a sideline in Beer?!
