As many people will know Lawrie was a keen local historian. Over many years he did extensive research into various aspects of The Wolfords and the surrounding area, including specific properties and families as well as the more usual themes of population, religion, agriculture, education etc.
Following Lawrie’s death his family presented the Village Hall Trustees with his archive, comprising original and copied photographs, copy maps, documents, his own notes and miscellaneous artefacts. This has now been examined and catalogued and is stored at the Village Hall. Details of the documents available can be viewed on the Wolfords Village Hall Website and on the Wolfords Village Website. If any residents would like access to this for their own research, please contact Isobel Murphy (01608 674005).
