Richard Leach Maddox (1816-1902) developed photographic processes. He was a GP, and moved to Woolston about 1860. He worked on photomicrography, taking pictures of organisms seen through the microscope. Eventually he began to use gelatine in a dry plate process, which he published in 1871 in the British Journal of Photography. He received several awards for his work. He and his second wife lived abroad for a while in the 1870s, and then in Gunnersbury (Hounslow). In the 1880s he was living in Belmont Road in Portswood, where he died.
