The People of St. John's, Wick: a congregational history by Gordon Johnson
This new local title was researched and written by Gordon Johnson, and is a history of people in Wick who have been actively involved with St. John's episcopal church, Moray St., Pulteneytown since the congregation was founded in 1855.

Many local personalities appear, especially people originally from England who attended St. John's as the nearest in worship style to their churches back home.  Successive harbour masters, some landowners, a chief constable, a sheriff, an admiral, and a local solicitor feature, as well as more ordinary folk such as a dyer, a cafe owner, a shoemaker, a governess, a
plumber - people from all walks of life. The first printing sold out to members and friends, and this new printing is aimed at a wider audience, for those interested in local history and genealogy.

The A4, yellow, 40-page spiral bound book is published by the church at 3.00 per copy, and can be purchased either from D.R.Simpson's bookshop, High St., Wick, or obtained direct from Gordon at Glenorchy, Papigoe, Wick KW1-4RD. If ordering copies from Gordon by post, add post and packing (60p. UK;1.30 Europe; 2.20 N.America & Australasia).
