Peter Joynson

Peter Joynson (1928-2020) was born in Strathard and lived in the area most of his life.  The Joynson family established their long term relationship from the 1850s and have over the years been extensive landowners and significant supporters of the community. Peter’s contributions to this web site reflect his lifelong interest in history. His book, Local Past, self published in 1996 remains a key reference source about the area. His in-depth knowledge and generosity in sharing information remains was one of his many attributes.

Note: the Archive Department of the University of Stirling holds material from the Glassert Estate.
