Thomas Richardson (Hartlepool MP died 1906)
Richardson stood unsuccessfully for Parliament in The Hartlepools at the 1892 general election, losing by a narrow margin of 76 votes (less than 1% of the total) to the sitting Liberal Party member, Christopher Furness. He won the seat at the 1895 general election, with a majority of 81 votes, but at the next general election, in October 1900, Furness retook the seat with a large majority. Richardson did not stand again.
