The L. family roots are from the Isle of Jersey in the Channel Islands. There is still a Lempriere St. there at this writing (2001). (Photo will be added here eventually.)

Another recognized member is Thomas L. who placed a tidal marker in
Tasmania in the early 1800's and made methodical measurements about
tidal and climate data. This marker and data are still in use today
as the earliest accurate measurements for "global warming"
analysis. More information about this work can be found at
