The Under Sheriff of Hertfordshire


Richard Taylor qualified as a solicitor with a central London firm in 1977 and remained with them for four years before joining the long-established firm of Longmores in his home town of Hertford. 


He was a partner with Longmores for thirty years until December 2014 specialising in commercial and agricultural property and company law and was a consultant with the firm for a further four years.  He was first appointed Under Sheriff in 2016.


Richard and his wife, Shirley, have two daughters and five grandchildren. 


Richard is a trustee of three local charities in the areas of education and the community.  


His leisure time interests include watching and, to a lesser degree these days, playing ball sports, particularly cricket, football and golf, and is a life-long Spurs supporter. He also enjoys photography and walking, tries his hand occasionally at painting and calligraphy and has a fascination for maps and history.
