    Notes 
    • Richard was called to the Bar and practised in London until 1839 when he decided to migrate. With his brother Ralph Thomas, naval officer, he arrived in the Bengal at Sydney in February 1840,later moving to Queensland.

      He was elected to the Legislative Assembly without opposition on 20 May 1860. On 14 January 1862 he became secretary for public lands and works in the Herbert ministry but was defeated by an organized sectarian vote in the by-election resulting from his acceptance of public office. On 3 July 1863 he was nominated to the Legislative Council where he represented the government; from 13 September 1866 to 15 August 1867 he was postmaster-general under Arthur Macalister and from 28 January to 3 May 1870 under Charles Lilley . Gore surrendered his Bodumba and Canning Creek leases in 1869 and acquired a stud property called Lyndhurst, near Warwick, where he died on 16 August 1871, leaving four sons and three daughters.

      He is commemorated by a statue in Warwick, a street in Toowoomba, a highway and a railway station.
