Richard Barrow Cadbury (1835-1899) was the second son of the Quaker John Cadbury, founder of Cadbury's cocoa and chocolate company.
Together with his younger brother George he took over the family business in 1861 and in 1878 they acquired 14 acres of land in open country, four miles south of Birmingham where they opened a new factory in 1879. Over the following years, more land was acquired and a model village was built for his workers which became known as Bournville.
He donated Moseley Hall to the City of Birmingham, for use as a children's convalescent home
