Peregrine Richard was the great-uncle of Richie. He is mentioned in Bottom Live 2003: The Weapons Grade Y-Fronts Tour when he bequeathes a trunk of wonders to Richie in his will. Eddie however intercepts the trunk and uses Peregrine's handbook of inventions to create a variety of bizarre devices, including a time machine. Amongst the trunk's contents is a small bottle labelled "The Elixir of Life," which despite its namesake actually killed Peregrine rather unpleasantly.
