The Turvey Website

by Deborah Richardson

Please note that whilst I have tried very hard to offer valuable information, I can not guarantee the accuracy of the contents of these pages. There may be typing or other such errors. I have quoted original sources where possible and recommend that these are consulted by researchers.

If you spot any errors please let me know and I will correct them and wear a Dunce's hat for a day!


I have worked very hard to add all the content to this site.  My photographs and  writing are protected by copyright. Please do not copy chunks to put on your site or to publish in print.

If you want to use something, please ask me first (I am very friendly!).

Due to the nature of this website it contains lots of graphics, some are quite large.

Please be patient, there should always be text on screen to keep you busy!

Here you can find out more about the history of the village, and the families who lived here.  If you are unsure where to start - try the site map.  If you are researching a family name, just type it in the search box at the top.

This site is dedicated to the memory of my dear grandfather,

Albert Richardson,

who showed me so much of the beauty of the village & who always had time to listen to a little chatterbox.

What’s New?  26 February 2015

I have updated the Contact Me page so the contact form should now work correctly and the link to my Blog is now correct.

Updates to the Schools Pre 1845 and Schools After 1845 pages.

Updates to the Lace Making and Lace Making Equipment pages

Some useful links added to the Straw Plait in Turvey page.  

The Turvey in the 1920s page has also been tidied up.

The page on Building the Laws Hotel has been reformatted and is now more readable.

The link to the Turvey Book Store now works - this is an Amazon affiliate store with books on Turvey, local history and other similar things.  If you buy from this you will be buying from, so it is very safe.  I will get a small commission for sending customers there way.  This then goes to paying for the web-hosting etc for the site.

Welcome to the Turvey Website.
