Laura Churchyard (1830-1891)

Born at Well Street, now Seckford Street, Woodbridge, Suffolk and baptized at St Mary’s church on 7 February 1830, daughter of Thomas Churchyard (1795-1865) and his wife Harriet née Hailes {1797-1865).  Educated at a boarding school at Bury St. Edmund’s.  A member of Ipswich Fine Art Club, exhibited from Seckford Street, Woodbridge The Rope Walk, Woodbridge (1881) and continued to exhibit 1882-1890, mostly landscapes including At Brightwell, Wilford Bridge and Little Bealings Church (1886).  Her painting had a dash like her father’s and was the nearest to him in style, and his boon companion in later years, often seen out walking with him.  She particularly worked in watercolor.

She was librarian to Seckford Library at Woodbridge and in 1891 the four sisters were living at Seckford Library, Woodbridge.  She died, unmarried, at Woodbridge in the same year, aged 61 and buried in Woodbridge cemetery on 16 October.  She was succeeded as librarian by her sister Harriet.
