Thomas Richardson was a prominent Abingdon townsman. He built up a grocery business serving the town and the surrounding area and, as a leading member of the Wesleyan community, he had a prominent role in building Abingdon’s first Methodist chapel. He was born in Bicester in 1801, and seems to have been living in Abingdon by 1829 when he married Mary Warren, born in Stony Stratford in 1806. They had two children, Elizabeth, born about 1834, and Charles, about 1836. By 1831 he was occupying premises in Ock Street, just east of where the Post Office Sorting Office is now (2015).
