There appeared to be a feeling that Sir Nicholas LAWES within his lifetime that he was related to Henry LAWES I understand that Mr Henry Lawes LONG of Hampton Lodge made diligent enquiries in order to establish his descent from Henry LAWES, the musician at the court of King Charles I, an account of which, can be found in the 'Dictionary of National Biography'.
Amongst the papers left by the LONG Family were saeveral letters in reply to his enquiries, There was no doubt that due to the tradition within the family which refered to the possesion of a portrait og Henry LAWESwhich was at Hampton Lodge and to a note written by Robert LONG the grandson of Colonel Charles and Amy LAWES in 1731, to the effect that his father Samuel LAWES had received Mr LAWES'S picture and that Sir Nicholas had died on the 25 June that year and had been buried at Half-Way Tree Church Jamaica.
The possession of the portrait which was given in the lifetime of Sir Nicholas LAWES at a time when the name of his Grandfather may have been remembered athough it was obscured by 100 years appears to leave little doubt that Henry LAWES who died in 1662 and was buried in Westminster Abbey was indeed the grandfather of Sir Nicholas.

Subsequent research by myself found that Henry LAWES had been born a Dinton in Wiltshire in 1595 the son of the parish priest Thomas LAWES by his wife Lucretia SHEPHERD, Thomas was born at Dyndner in Somerset as was Sir Nicholas's father, Nicholas himself was born at Compton Chamberlaine which lay within 3 miles south of Dinton, across the water meadows of the river Nadder, and although Henry married 3 times he had no surviving heirs so was not the grandfather 


Today we would like to salute HM Royal Marines in their 350th year.

In 2014 the Corps of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines celebrate their 350th anniversary.  To commemorate this date, Royal Marines Commandos ski,'d, sailed, cycled, canoed and ran 6656km (circa 4136 miles). The aim was to encapsulate the Commando spirit and Corps values in a significant physical and mental challenge.


Today, we'd also like to salute
