Samuel was a Master Baker, at one time owned a large house at Perranuthnoe and was a very good bowls player.
The picture is of Samuel Payne Richards, my husband's Grandfather, husband of Georgina Richards (nee Searle) and mother to both Peggy May and Georgina Marie. He was a Grandson to John Bramble Richards who was a brother to your William Mathews Richards.
On the bottom of the photo is enscribed "Sam P Richards County Champion 1929-1934 & 1935" so we presume the photo was taken in 1935 at a presentation (note the shield on the table to the right) at his bowling club. Incidentally, Rex's brother now has his Grandfather's bowls and has himself gone on to win County Championships with the same set of bowls! The bowling club still operates (Penzance Bowling Club) and there are still photos of Samuel on the walls of the club house and a seat dedicated in his memory outside
