I was particularly interested to hear of your Lawn connection and would certainly like to know more. I know very little about the Lawn family other than what has been included previously on the Lawn site. Having checked the map I see that Tunstall is quite a way from Norton Subcourse or Earsham where Buxton's family came from however, still close enough for there to be a possibility of a family connection. It is widely felt within the descendants of Buxton Lawn that he was a son of Hannah Lightfoot and George III. This has yet to be proved but certainly there are elements of the story which prove a royal connection to the family. Recent information suggests that Buxton married a second wife in about 1811 and also shows that he was a bankrupt in 1797 and again in 1810. No details of his death and burial have yet been discovered.
I have no family connection with Buxton Lawn however I have spent 25 years looking for Hannah Lightfoot who is still a missing person from the 18th century.
