Richard Woollard was born circa 1817 at Hanford, Staffordshire.1 He was the son of Thomas Woollard.1 Richard Woollard was a carpenter.2

Richard Woollard married Eliza Darby, daughter of Richard Darby and Letitia White, at St. Mary the Virgin on Thursday, 2 March 1843 at Walkern, Hertfordshire.1 The village lies off the main road in the valley of the Beane on the road to Watton. It is fairly large and somewhat straggling, the church, rectory and school, and Walkern Place, a 17th-century farm-house of timber and plaster lying at the north end. Nearby is a small castle of the mount and bailey type, thrown up possibly by Hamo de St. Clare in the reign of Stephen.The church of St. Mary The Virgin stands to the north-east of the village on the east bank of the River Beane. It is built of flint rubble with dressings of Barnack stone and clunch. The original church consisted probably of a chancel and nave. The former has been wholly rebuilt, and the earliest part of the existing church is the nave, which dates from the 11th century and is probably part of the pre-Conquest church.3

Richard Woollard was a head carpenter at London.2

Richard died circa March 1892 at Lambeth, London.1
