The treasure today is the 1851 English Census record for the James Richman family in Hilperton, Wiltshire.
The information for the James Richman family on this census record is:
* Village of: Hilperton
* No. of Household Schedule: 88
* Name of Street, Place, or Road, and Name or No. of House: Hilperton
* Name and Surname of each Person who abode in this house, on the Night of the 30th March, 1851:

** Thomas Richman - Son, ---, 2, male, ---, Wilts, Marsh
** James Richman - Son, ---, 1, male, ---, Wilts. Marsh
I first obtained this record from a Family History Library microfilm, so the source citation I have is:
1851 Census of England, Wiltshire, Hilperton [parish], District 257, Folio 254 verso, household 88, James Richman household; Public Record Office HO 107/1840, Family History Library, Salt Lake City, Utah; FHL BRITISH microfilm 220,987.
1851 England and Wales Census, Hilperton (Village), Wiltshire, Hilperton [parish], page 21 (penned), household 88, James Richman, Public Record Office HO 107/1840; online image, Archives.com (www.archives.com : accessed 30 April 2012).
Those are probably not "perfect" but they're probably "good enough." I developed them in RootsMagic 5 source templates, but they do not match the Evidence! Explained models exactly for some reason (pages 301 to 305 of the First Edition).
James and Hannah (Rich) Richman are my second great-grandparents, and migrated to the United States in 1855/6 with their children.
