                                                   Lawrence Family

The ancestors of my maternal grand father Edwin William Lawrence originated in Bath, Somerset. His great grand mother Harriet Hill came from Milton Clevedon, Somerset and her paternal line can be traced back through the parish registers to the 17th century. Sadly many Somerset archives, including most locally proved wills were destroyed in the second world war, which means little is known about any of them. 

My maternal grand mother Mary Teresa Kearns was born in Ballyboden, near Dublin, Ireland, and until recently virtually nothing was known of her ancestry beyond the names and approximate birth details of her parents. More recent discoveries have shed a little more light on this but I would love to hear from anyone with any information about this line.
