The Turvey Website

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.

Alan Richardson

Turvey boy, local historian and my wonderful father,

Alan passed away on Saturday, 14 March 2015.

My dad was born in 1940, in the old building that is now the Central Stores, in the middle of Turvey High Street.  

Dad moved to nearby Olney when he got married in 1965, but many family members were still in Turvey, and he still spent a lot of time in the village.

Over the years he studied the history of the village, and regularly gave talks and guided walks, which always had a great turn-out, even though it seems that his walks always brought on the rain!

Dad has worked with me on this website since I created it nearly 14 years ago, and I have been so grateful for his amazing knowledge, great sense of humour and basically the fact he was the best dad ever.

Alan was a very well known in the village and I know there will be many who will miss him.

I will add details of when the funeral is as soon as I have them.
