Arthur Isaac Richardson and Evelyn Annie French
3-Arthur Isaac Richardson was born on 21 Nov 1885 in Deloraine, Tasmania and died on 23 Jul 1938 in Bracknell, Tasmania at age 52.
Arthur married Evelyn Annie French, daughter of Rowland Robert French and Annie Elizabeth Briggs, on 16 Apr 1913 in Methodist Church, Hagley. Evelyn was born on 19 May 1889 in Ringarooma and died on 5 Jan 1978 at age 88.
They had four children:
- Gwen Evelyn
- Minnie Irene
- Cyril Arthur and
- Kenneth Roland.
The family lived on the Osmaston Road where they had a farm in an area known as Paddy's Scrub. The family moved to the Front Place at Exton, on the eastern edge of the township — a farm now owned by Alan French.
As Arthur grew up he worked with his father and brothers often helping the older brothers as they set up their farms. He worked with William at Parkham, and Clarence at Elizabeth Town. Later the family moved to "Lenna" at Hagley.
In April, 1913 Arthur, now 27, married Evelyn Annie French at the Hagley Methodist Church.They continued farming at Lenna with Arthur's father and his brother, Victor. They grew grain crops and raised cattle, sheep and pigs. They had a Wallis tractor in the early 1920's and all kinds of farm machinery and equipment. There were a number of draught horses and light horses for the buggy and jinker before the early cars appeared.
Lenna was well known at Bells Mart in Launceston for many years. Each week over a hundred pounds of dairy butter and about six dressed pigs were sent in to be bought by regular customers at. the top price. Both Arthur and Evelyn were keenly interested in the Methodist Church at Hagley and later at Bracknell where they took part in all church activities.
Arthur and Evelyn and their four young children (two girls and twin boys) bought a farm at Bracknell known as Melrose in 1926. This farm, on the Oaks Road had 338 acres of good land, bordering the road and the Liffey River. The family continued to supply Bells Mart with dairy butter and dressed pork each week and grain crops were grown.
Soon after coming to Bracknell, Arthur who had always been very interested in machinery, bought a steam engine and plant from Alf Bosworth. He set up as a contractor with two steam engines a drum, chaff-cutter and straw press. This involved employing about 20 men in the summer and autumn. He also took over a sawmill at Liffey. The Depression years 1929-35 brought many worries. Prices were very low, debts were difficult to collect and Arthur was always loth to put a man off work. His health began to fail under the strain. However with the valiant help of Evelyn, Gwen and the young boys Cyril and Ken the farm and contracting business was kept on.
Arthur became seriously ill in 1928 and died in July of that year. The family sold the machinery after a few years but continued with the farm and paid off all the mortgage.
