Richardson traveled to India as a cadet in the Bengal Army in 1819 and served in the education department in Calcutta. He returned to London to edit the London Weekly Review (1827) and Colburn’s Court Journal. Richardson also edited the Calcutta Monthly Journal and, later, the Calcutta Literary Gazette (1834-39). In 1837, Richardson was appointed professor of English Literature and the Hindu College at Calcutta, where he served as principal. He returned to Britain in 1861 and spent his last years working as an editor in London.
