Ellis repeatedly refers to Jonathon Richardson (brother of Benjamin and W.H.) as Johnathon.
Until page 335 where he refers to him as both Johnathon and Jonathon.

One reason could be because in 'Richardson Papers no 41 Bankruptcy notices' (see pp 348 note 82), Jonathon seems to  have been mentioned as Johnathon - (see p329) where Ellis quotes
 'B. Richardson on 5 May, 1848 mortgaged all his interest in the glass trade to W.H. and J. Richardson as security of liabilities incurred by them in their bills without  their knowledge and consent as alleged by Mr Johnathon Richardson'.



There is also a note on pp 347 Note 60. 'Johnathon Richardson, son  of Joseph Richardson and his wife Martha, nee Haden, bap. 24th Aug 1806 Kingswinford.' where it refers to him as Johnathon not Jonathon - this might be the primary error?

I've no idea why Ellis then switches to Jonathon. 

There is also another misconception in the sentence where he makes that switch -
'Benjamin was sixty-one and Jonathon(sic) fifty-nine years old.'  (pp335)

  where from the information Anne has given, Jonathon had already died by the time Benjamin was sixty-one.

I suspect that because a death was not established for Jonathon (brother of William H and Benjamin i.e. 'our' Jonathon) assumptions were made that he was still alive.

Adding a link to another thread where there is now more information on Jonathon Richardson and his wife Sarah (nee Lloyd) from a member of the family.

Can I just add to my previous posts, it's absolutely right that Jonathan had 3 sons but two of them died young.  The one I had missed is Jonathan (sometimes spelt Johnathan) baptised in Kingswinford 10 April 1846, married Sarah Ann Morton at St Thomas Dudley 31 Jan 1864, died aged 21 January 1/4 1867.  I haven't found any children.  I think the existence of this son probably accounts for the apparent references to Jonathan Senior in the business after he died.
