Here's one possibility. If he is yours it would appear his father died young as his mother has remarried. Alternately she had 2 children before she married.
Here's the marriage

Couldn't find a birth registration for William Richard Matthews but there is one for plain William and another for Richard. This Richard matches with the age of Richard son of Martha on the 1851 census
Births Sep 1846
Matthews Richard Farnham 4 139
And the birth registration as William
Births Sep 1845
Matthews William Farnham 4 147
Births Jun 1844
Matthews Miriam Crane Farnham 4 136
I wonder..... could this mean that Martha Mathews/Young had the maiden name Crane
Not sure if this is the same person in 1861 there were 23 other live in assistants/domestics working at the drapers it must have been quite a big store.
