Interested in the history of your property? Not sure where to start? Why not contact us to find out how we can start tracing the history of your house.
It is first of all important to collate as much information as you know about the property. Approximately when was it built? In the 20th century? 19th century? Or much earlier?
Was it ever given a different name? Or even different house number? With this information, searches can be of sources such as trade directories, census returns and probate records. In turn, these can give an idea of who lived there and what type of occupations they had.
For older properties, it might be that tithe and manorial records could be used.
