Re: [Peterhead] Re Lawrance Family from Peterhead 1700s-1900s
- Hi Trish
I'm sorry I hadn't heard of any book written by Robert Murdoch Lawrence. However I have just done a quick web search and on the University of Liverpool website : http://sca.lib.liv.ac.uk/ead/search?operation=full&recid=gb141alr-alr.b.2%c2%a0 the following is listed:
Letters from Robert Murdoch Lawrence of Cairnchina, 23 Ashley Road, Aberdeen, Scotland (1918- 1921)Robert Murdoch Lawrence was a resident of Aberdeen. He was the assistant manager of Aberdeen's oldest booksellers, founded on 9 November 1814. He was a Johnsonian collector with interests in all aspects of that period, including Boswell. His own research focused upon the history of the Lawrances after 1667. Amongst his acquaintances was P J Anderson of Aberdeen University.
The information relates to a collection of letters and includes the above brief biography.

Subject: [Peterhead] Re Lawrance Family from Peterhead 1700s-1900s
I have not posted a question for some time but have recently been sent quite a lot more information on my Peterhead family with photos etc As usual it has filled some gaps and opened up more queries If Alison Kennedy is still on this list- she sent me family details some years ago on the Lawrance history. Would she know the whereabout of a book written by Robert Murdoch Lawrance in the early 1900's? Anyone interested in this family can contact by email for details.
