Description:
Doctor John Richardson (born Linton, Cambridgeshire — died 1625) was Master of Trinity College, Cambridge from 1615 until his death.

John Richardson matriculated as a sizar from Clare College, Cambridge in 1578. He was made a Fellow of Emmanuel College, and then Master of Peterhouse before accepting the same position at Trinity, where he was also Regius Professor of Divinity, and served in 1617 and 1618 as Vice-Chancellor of the University.

Richardson was a skilled linguist, and he served in the "First Cambridge Company", charged by James I of England with the translation of the books of the Old Testament from the Books of Chronicles to Song of Songs (comprising most of the Ketuvim) for the King James Version of the Bible.

At his death, Richardson left a bequest of £100 to Peterhouse.
