Frank Richards was born at Saltwood, Kent in 1868 to John and Elizabeth Richards. He grew up in Maidstone before moving to Sevenoks as a reporter on the Sevenoaks Chronicle. He formed a close relationship with the artist and painter Charles Essenhigh Corke and, together, they produced Old Sevenoaks which was printed in the Sevenoaks Chronicle before being published by J.
