Thomas Richman



This site is dedicated to finally solving the mystery of Essex man Thomas Richman and his treasure


I have listed all my research acquired over the last thirty years. This represents many hours of delving into parish records, college libraries and other places of interest.


It all started over two hundred and fifty years ago and centres around the diaries and journals of Thomas Richman, a chance encounter with a lost monk, a Bishop and a treasure. This may not be the “da Vinci code” but it is a great little mystery. All the clues and the treasure are located in Essex. Find the keys, find the treasure. It may appear simple but it’s very easy to lose your way. I did. Perhaps you can succeed where I failed.
