Besides my love of all things William, I am also interested in Richmal Crompton's brother John Lambourne,who's escapades as a child, I believe, gave Richmal Crompton inspiration for some of William's adventures!

You can read about his very interesting life by clicking on the 'John Lambourne Section' button above.

There are a few sites with William content, although a lot are mainly selling the books.

However sites I have come across of interest are as follows:- Get in touch for membership details. General stock of childrens books with a large section on William. Book seller. General stock.Childrens & William. Super site relating to Thomas Henry. Wikipedia link about Thomas Henry. Wikipedia link about Richmal Crompton. Interesting article on a William magazine that didnt take off.


I would like to thank all the sites from who I have gleaned information from.

Also my long suffering girlfriend for her help, support and encouragement in making this project come to life.

Last but cirtainly not least to Richmal Crompton & Thomas Henry, who, with their perfect partnership with William, has given me, my parents and my family many many years of joy and laughter.
