Annelise is currently transcribing diaries kept by her grandfather Thomas Masters Hardy and her great-great grandfather William Masters Hardy.


WM Hardy started a family building firm in Swanage and was a passionate local historian. The business passed to his son, George Hardy and then his grandson, Thomas M Hardy.


William was the author of 'Old Swanage. Or Purbeck - Past and Present' and 'Smuggling Days in Purbeck'.


When completed the memoirs will be published as an on demand print book through Blurb.
