Richard Dimes, Sr. was born at 39 Pulheney Street, in Islington. He was the son of Francis Dimes and Susannah Brown.

He married Caroline Patterson on 11 Feb 1877 at St. Anne's, Westminster. They were the parents of nine children.

Between 1881 and 1882, the Dimes family emigrated to Boston, Massachusetts. Trained in England, Richard found employment as a master silversmith. According to the Encyclopedia of American Silversmiths, 3rd edition, he worked for both Towle Manufacturing and the Frank W. Smith Company. He founded Dimes Company in 1908. The company ceased to exist in 1955, when it was acquired by the King Silver Company.
