For award-winning, internationally-acclaimed author Rosemary Sutcliff (1920-92). By Anthony Lawton: godson, cousin & literary executor. Rosemary Sutcliff wrote historical fiction, children's literature and books, films, TV & radio, including The Eagle of the Ninth, Sword at Sunset, Song for a Dark Queen, The Mark of the Horse Lord, The Silver Branch, The Lantern Bearers, Dawn Wind, Blue Remembered Hills.
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).
