My great grandfather was Hugh Richardson born at Roxburghshire in 1833.His parents were Henry and Beatrix Brichardas. I am told that Brichardas is an old form of Richardson. Is this correct?
Hugh married Agnes Don, born at Bannockburn 1833. They married at St Ninians, Stirlingshire, 17 July 1857. They emmigrated to Otago NZ on the Robert Henderson in 1860. I believe they had a infant daughter, Janet Stewart born before leaving Scotland.
Agnes had two brothers, William and John Don who arrived here in 1858.
Does this info ring a bell with anyone? I'd love to hear from you. Thank you, Arthur Uden
