Blackmore: Revd Walter Layton Petrie

Original post 29 April 2008. Revd Walter Layton Petrie was Vicar of Blackmore from 1888 to 1922, and also of Norton Mandeville. During his incumbency he was instrumental in the restoration of both churches. The photograph comes from a collection given to me which was once exhibited in the (now closed) local library. If you are a descendant, it would be good to hear from you.

Updated 8 June 2008. Keith Doree in Sydney, Australia, E mailed to say that he is related to WLP.
