    Richmond? isn't it Jane Austen who says something like "we are taught that there are two towns bearing this name, one in Yorkshire and one in Surrey"? The Surrey one was named after the Yorkshire one (by Henry VII?). I guess from "Swaledale" that you are from the original one, though I doubt many in Surrey know there are two!

    EDIT (from Wikipedia) The name is based on 76390 Richemont, France. I've been past there four times in the past ten weeks. At least it wasn't neighbouring Foucarmont...

    Yes Henry VII.

    According to Wikipedia Richmond "is" in London. It is certainly in a London borough. Doesn't stop it being in Surrey! So you live in "Richmondshire"...
