Lawrence was Otago's first gold-rush town, originally named Tuapeka, and then later renamed after the British hero who defended Lucknow during the 1857 Indian Mutiny.

At the height of the gold fever, its population was 11,500; double that of Dunedin, making it one of the largest communities in the country.
