bringing history to life


Turtle Bunbury is a best-selling author,  historian and public speaker who specialises in writing corporate, family and house histories. His books include The Glorious Madness, 1847, Living in Sri Lanka and the award-winning Vanishing Ireland series. He appears on TV series such as Who Do You think You Are? and Genealogy Roadshow. Turtle's work has been published in National Geographic Traveler, The World of Interiors and Vogue Living.


Turtle extensively searches through all relevant archives, including contemporary newspapers and genealogical records, to establish the facts.  He also interviews the key players.  Turtle then converts those facts into a tale that is compelling, lucid and entertaining.

Whether its your business, your family, your building or your area, the content can be produced  as an e-book, a paperback or a leather-bound hardback. We can also produce your history as an audio-book or  documentary film.​

‘One of the most versatile authors of his generation.’   

Marjorie Quarton

‘Vivid, surprising, hugely entertaining … I've always loved Turtle's writing, the wit and heartbeat in his history.’
