Sir Richard Redman or Redmayne (died 1426) was a Britishmarker soldier, administrator and politician, being elected as a Member of Parliament representing Yorkshiremarker and later acting as the Speaker of the House of Commons for the Parliament of 1415.

He was the son of Sir Matthew Redman, who served in Francemarker and Spainmarker under John of Gaunt, and grandson of another Sir Matthew Redman who was the Member of Parliament for Westmorlandmarker in 1357 and 1358.

In 1393 Richard was granted leave to hold a tournament in Carlislemarker. Between 1399 and 1400 he travelled to Ireland with John de Cobham, 3rd Baron Cobham before returning to Englandmarker in May to create a peace with Scotlandmarker. In 1405 he was commissioned to fine members of the gentry associated with the rebellion by Henry Percy, 1st Earl of Northumberland, and was the same year elected to represent Yorkshire as a Member of Parliament, a job he returned to for the Parliaments of 1414, 1415, 1420 and 1421. In 1408 he was commissioned again to fine gentry associated with the Percy Rebellion after their defeat at the Battle of Bramham Moormarker.

In 1409 and 1410 he attempted to gain peace with the Scotmarker; after this failed he was tasked with raising forces against them. In 1415 along with John Strange he raised forces against the French before the Hundred Years' War and was elected speaker of the 1415 parliament, which met on November the 4th and lasted only 8 days due to the loyalist feeling after the Battle of Agincourtmarker before Parliament voted for supplies to maintain the war with France. In 1421 he was again commissioned to raise money for the war with Francemarker before his death in 1426.

His son, Matthew Redman, died before him in 1419. Richard Redman, the Bishop of Exeter, was most likely his great-grandson.
