Excellent horseman.
Described as being (in 1808) "very slim, and silent and languid. Engaged in voluntary minesterial duties when at . He looked grave and depressed, which might have been owing to his being afraid of [David Bevan] who showed his real fondness for him in a rough way, and who criticised him and rallied him unreasonably." He had two little darkish rooms in the attics. There he was often shut up with Leader, the Vernham schoolmaster, contriving books and cards for the schools, especially the Sunday school...Mr Seaton, the dissenting minister from Andover, an orthodox man, was his only educated friend." "...his dutiful devotion to his parents, and to his many pleasing qualities, such as his candour, his refinement, and intellectual tastes." Favell Lee Mortimer (Bevan) in "Reminiscences of Richard Bevan".

Richard married Charlotte Hunter in 1823 at Holy Trinity, Clapham and had four daughters and a son – Richard Alexander.
