» Lawson Records

Records held in the Lawson One Name Study

The list of records below are computerised and held within several different database files, all of which are made freely available to researchers of the Lawson name. The only stipulation to this being that you MUST be registered and have posted your interests to the Forename Forums.

All data has been added to the searchable databases which has powerful search facilities enabling members to find records easily. Again these will only be available to those members who have posted details of their families in the Forums.

The addition of further records is taking place constantly and whilst this page will be updated periodically additional data may be available so do please enquire. I have omitted several personal notes from most of the files such as the names of other researchers sharing an interest in individuals. I am always able to put you in contact with fellow researchers so ask if anyone else shares an interest in your family line.

The contents of my databases are continually being updated. For example the census database now contains over 46,000 people and includes details from the 1881 census with 1841 to 1911 census details being added. In some cases families can be plotted through 70 years. I will gladly pass any further information to you in return for details of your own research.

Where specific dates are unknown dates for civil registrations are shown as 1st of March, June, September and December to denote the quarter in which registration occurred. Similarly dates in other databases are frequently shown as 01.01.1855 etc to indicate an approximate date of birth, death marriage etc. I would welcome additional information on any of the entries within these indexes such as full dates, places, parents and spouses.

Please do let me have details of any Lawson records you may have of your own family lines so that I can update the records I keep.
