You will need the marriage cert to find out her age and confirm her father's name. There are too many Mary E Richardson born at possible dates to be sure. What year did she die do you know?

As Archibald died in Norfolk , this might be Mary's death which gives middle name , and birth date

If you get Mary's marriage cert to Archibald hopefully it will show Thomas as father, and match the occupation as 'Textile salesman'.

On the 1911 census with her parents Thomas and Charlotte it clearly says she is 6 weeks old. Not as transcribed 1/12.
