RICHARDSON 1700 -1964 Fewcott, Bicester

Notes: My grandfather was born in Fewcott, near Bicester. When he married he moved to Bicester. He served in WW1, and he was severely wounded in France by shrapnel. My grandmother received a telegram informing her he was missing in action, presumed dead. However, he did turn up back in Bicester sometime later. Apparently, he was found in the mud by soldiers from another regiment, who transported him to a field hospital and them home to a military hospital in Kent. The family came from farming stock, and my grandfather, at the age of thirteen he started out life as a trainee shepherd. However, at the age of twenty one he joined the Post Office at Bicester. In 1951 he was awarded The Empire Service Medal by King George V1 for services to the Post Office, Grandad worked at the Bicester Post Office until his retirement in the early 1960s. I have some history of the Richardson/Smith families dating back to 1700 and would like any information that relates to the Richardson/Smith families
