RICHARDSON, Nathaniel Smith, clergyman, born in Middlebury, Connecticut, 8 January, 1810; died in Bridgeport, Connecticut, 7 August, 1888. He was graduated at Yale in 1834, and pursued theological studies at the Episcopal general theological seminary, but was not graduated. He was ordained deacon in Trinity church, Portland, Connecticut, 8 July, 1838, by Bishop Brownell, and priest in Christ church, Watertown, Connecticut, in 1839, by the same bishop. He was assistant minister of Christ church, Watertown, in 1838-'9, and its rector from 1839 till 1845, when he accepted a call to Christ church, Derby, Connecticut, and occupied that post for four years. In 1848 he removed to New Haven, Connecticut, and founded the "American Church Review," of which he was editor and proprietor for twenty years. He received the degree of D. D. from Racine college in 1849. He became rector of St. Paul's church, Bridgeport, in 1868, and labored there until 1881. In 1879 he established a new weekly paper in the interests of the Protestant Episcopal church, called "The Guardian," which he edited until his death. Dr. Richardson's publications include "Reasons why I am a Churchman " (Watertown, 1843); "Historical Sketch of Watertown, Connecticut" (New Haven, 1845); "Churchman's Reasons for his Faith and Practice" (1846); "Reasons why I am not a Papist" (1847); and "Sponsor's Gift" (1852; new ed., 1867). He also contributed numerous valuable papers to the " Church Review."
