On the 13th of April 1765 a Marriage license was granted to John Richardson of Sedgefield and Mary Flintoff of Huton Rudby, John was 40 years old (born 1725) and Mary was 30 years old (born 1735)
John Richardson married Mary Flintoff on the 23 Apr 1765 at Hutton Rudby, Yorkshire. The marriage states that John was a resident of Sedgefield, Durham and is a widower. John Richardson signed his name in good handwritting, Mary made a cross for her name so couldn't write. The witnesses were Thomas and Christopher Flintoff.
Here is a transcription of the marriage registration "John Richardson of the parish Sedgefield in the County of Durham widower and Mary Flintoff of the parish of Hutton Rudby in the county of York, spinster were married by a license granted Mr Hopchinson ??jur?? 20 gate in Yarm, in the parish church of Hutton Rudby aforesaid this twenty third day of April in the year 1765 by me Geo Slainthorpe, Vicar of Rudby"
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. 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).
