They had six children:
- Harold Isaac George
- Leila Effie May
- Ella Louisa Mary
- Arnold Alfred Charles
- Ethel Amelia Ellen and
- Raymond Vernon Irra.
Alfred was the first child of Isaac Simeon Richardson and Mary Ann Walker and was born at Paddy's Scrub, on 20th March, 1872. Very little is known of his boyhood days.
He married Louisa Charlotte Thomas Morse at Calstock, Deloraine on 19th Mar, 1897 by the Baptist minister, Reverend S. Archer Harris. On the 9th September, 1902 he purchased 236 acres of land originally granted to Thomas Ritchie and William Henty of Chudleigh in 1850. This was part of the Mayfield property. The part bought by Alfred was originally known as Stafford Bills Paddock but was later named Glenwood. He paid £1,830 for it.
They lived at Skipper's Cottage at Chudleigh while the four front rooms of the house were being built. The first building built on the property was the chaff-house.
The farm was mainly natural bush bounded by the Lobster Creek. It had to be cleared by horses and bullocks with the use of stump pullers. By 1910 much of the farm was cleared and sown to grass. The house, stable, barn, grainery, chaff-house and cart shed had been built. By this time their family had arrived — Harold Isaac George, 12th June, 1898; Leila Effie May, 5th July, 1901;Ella Louisa Mary, 15th February, 1905; Arnold Alfred Charles, 18th May, 1909; Ethel Amelia Ellen, 26th November, 1911 and Raymond Vernon Ira, 1st December, 1913.
The children all attended the State School at Chudleigh but were all expected to work hard on the farm tending the horses and cattle, producing poultry and eggs and making butter. As the boys grew older they continued clearing the property, erecting fences and planting crops of oats, peas and turnips.
In the mid 1920's, Alfred and his sons built up a stud of Australian Illawarra Shorthorn cattle and exhibited them at most of the agricultural shows. In 1933 and 1934 they had the grand champion bull and heifer at both the Launceston and Devonport shows. They also had a pure bred Lincoln Stud but they were not exhibited. Alf was prominent in the Methodist Church being a local preacher, and also in the Chudleigh Show Society. In later years he became badly afflicted with rheumatism and eventually became bed-ridden. During this time he wanted to see his champion A.I.S. heifer so Arnold took it into his bedroom, followed closely behind by Ethel with a shovel.
He died at Chudleigh in April, 1937 and was buried in the Deloraine cemetery.
