Richard Carter (land agent)
Richard Carter was a land agent and surveyor in Halifax, West Yorkshire, England. In 1846 he had both Thomas Archer Hirst and John Tyndall working for him. He introduced them, thereby cementing some of the first bonds in the famous X Club to which T H Huxley and others also belonged.
