      Richard the second son of Hugh, like so many young men whose place was not on the land served apprenticeships in the various Guilds, so Richard at the age of 17, son of Hugh, gentleman deceased, lately of Trescott Grange, was apprenticed to John Langley, citizen and fishmonger of London, for a term of 8 years obtaining his freedom in 1625, was raised to the Livery in 1631 and came on the Court of Assistant in 16-45-6. Although free of the Fishmongers' Guild he was a linen-draper by trade and owned a shop known as the "Golden Lion" in Cornhill. He married Hannah Hazard daughter of a London merchant and died in 1648, and was buried in South Chapel, Cornhill by Brother "Wolliston." He left a son John in Spain and a daughter Elizabeth.
