Richard Tangye (1833-1906) was born into a Quaker family in Coombe Ridge, Surrey, England, but was himself not a member of the Society of Friends. His parents were Joseph Tangye and Ann Bullock. He attended the Quaker Sidcot School in Somerset, England.

In addition to being an engineer, Tangye was interested in collecting history, particularly Cromwelliana. Tangye died in England in 1906.
