The Bishop of Richmond was an episcopal title used by a suffragan bishop of the Church of England Diocese of Ripon, in the Province of York, England.[1] The title took its name after the town of Richmond in North Yorkshire. First bishop, John James Pulleine, was originally created the suffragan Bishop of Penrith in 1888, but his title was changed the following year to Richmond. Since 1921, the title has remained in abeyance.
