This house  was built for a Charles M Osmond, a schoolmaster, who came from Salisbury in Wiltshire. It was completed in 1861 and advertised as a 'commercial academy' for male pupils.

By 1865 Charles Osmond had moved and Richmond Villa was occupied by a Mr. James William Pankhurst. 

Pankhurst was an earthenware manufacturer (from 1850-82) with works in Charles Street and Old Hall Street, Hanley.
By 1879 Pankhurst had moved to Barlaston and Richmond Villa was taken by Selina Clementson, a widow aged 55.
