Mary Flintoff was baptized on December 20, 1736[1] in Hutton Rudby, Yorkshire. She was the daughter of Christopher Flintoff and Mary Dixon. She married John Richardson on April 23, 1765[2] in Hutton Rudby.[3]

On April 24, 1774 , John & Mary, along with their two children, Christopher and Elizabeth, left Newcastle-upon-Tyne aboard the sailing ship "The Providence" and sailed to Halifax, Nova Scotia.[4] Their third child, Joseph Providence Richardson, was born on board. They settled in Sackville, New Brunswick, where they may have had other children. Charlotte (Richardson) Dobson is often cited as one of their children, but DNA testing has ruled this out (see Charlotte's profile for details).
