Richard was convicted with his brother John.  John was transported on the Camden.  They came from Harwood Lee where the family were weavers and cotton bleachers.  Richard is often recorded as Richard Howarth Heaton.

Richard married Jane Dawson, a free settler from Buckinghamshire and they settled at Mt Vincent near Maitland NSW and raised a large family.
