James Richardson Thornton Rust

Mr James Richardson

James Richardson was born in 1901. He had two brothers (Ernest and Frank) and one sister (Alice)
He farmed at Manor House Farm Thornton Rust.

When James was a young man of 13 years he kept a little diary of his life on the farm in the years 1914/15/16.

Mr Richardson was a quiet man who enjoyed reading and his daughter said she thought he would have liked having his little work published.
I have certainly enjoyed transcribing it.
