Rosemary Sutcliff’s grandfather apprenticed and qualified as an Apothecary in the 1800s

Today’s diary entry by  author Rosemary Sutcliff refers to her mother. Coincidentally, I have today come across a copy of the original document which records the indenture as an apprentice apothecary of Rosemary Sutcliff’s grandfather (and my great grand-father), Dr Herbert Alfred Lawton (born 1851, died 1903).

Author: Anthony Lawton
