Richard was born in 1797. He was called to the bar at the King's Inns in Dublin and practised as a barrister. He had a banking partnership with his elder brother Robert that ended in the 1830's. He then worked as a land agent, trading as "R. Guinness & Co.", but found it difficult in the aftermath of the Irish famine of the 1840's.

He married Katherine Frances Jenskinson (daughter of Sir Charles Jenkinson, 10th Baronet and Katherine Campbell) on 25 November 1833 in Paris, France.[1]

They went on to have 8 children.
