Also see . . . Capt. William A. Richardson - Ancestry.com. His father was a rich land owner in England and William A. was born in London. He was educated there and as a youth went to sea. His first visit to San Francisco occurred in 1822. He engaged in trading in hides and tallow, and lightered these supplies out of the Bay in small boats to the ocean-going ships that lay outside. At that time none of the regular ocean liners came into the Bay. Later, Captain RICHARDSON had the distinction of piloting the first deep sea ship to enter the San Francisco Bay, landing it at Sausalito.
