MOUNT BINGHAM, THOMAS EDWARD LAWRENCE, 1888-1935) British Soldier, archaeologist and explorer
(Bramerton House, Mount Bingham)
He was popularly known as Lawrence of Arabia, because he organised and led the Arabs against the Turks in the 1914-18 war. He also wrote 'The Seven Pillars of Wisdom' (1926). His younger brother, Frank Helier, was born in Bramerton House in 1893, so that, being born in Jersey he would not be liable for service in the French Army when the family returned to their home in Dinard. This would have been when T.E. Lawrence, aged 5, would have stayed here. Other family holidays were spent in Gorey. For more information on T.E. Lawrence please click here.
