    Notes 
    • Richard Brandon played a large part in continuing to develop the gardens business for the Brandon Family. From his photo he looks well off. He was the eldest son of Richard and Elizabeth Brandon.

      Richard and his wife Henrietta raised a large family of 10 children.

      He was named in the Brandons Estate Act of 1860 as being given use of freehold and leasehold land under Samuel Brandon's will in Walworth. He was also appointed as a Trustee of Samuel Brandon's estate from 1825-1832. Shortly after his apointment on the 8th of June 1826 he was declared bankrupt. This may have been to protect him from claims being made against the Estate.

      At various points Richard was the plaintiff in cases made against the Thomas Brandon estate, and at other points he was the defendant. The legal issues must have consumed a lot of time and effort. Richard and Elizabeth lived at 30 Paradise Row, Rotherhithe. They later lived at Lucas Street, Rotherhithe. Both addresses were adjacent to the Rotherhithe market gardens which he leased or owned.

      Richard died on the 25th of March 1834, aged 63 years and 6 months, and a memorial inscription was placed in the church of St Mary's Newington.
