William Richardson was born in 1848 in Galashiels, Selkirkshire but by 1869 had moved to Edinburgh where he exhibited designs for villas in 1869 and 1870 That exhibited in 1869 was described by the Builder as 'large enough to be styled a mansion. It was one of the best examples of Gothic applied to domestic purposes produced north of the Tweed. There is no exuberance of detail and the proportion and distribution of the parts are well considered'.
He moved to Manchester by 1876 where he designed a villa for R J Jamieson Bo'ness / Borrowstouness, West Lothian, Scotland and where he joined in partnership with William Wallace Baldwin (qv)
