A House History project covers the past events of your period property and tells the stories of its earlier occupants. We provide information on the records as far back as are available. It will show how the house has developed over time, how the locality has altered, and will give information on former residents who owned or rented the house at different periods in its history.
History Angels use a variety of records to research your home, including:-
Local & Trade Directories.
Valuation Office records. Taxation & Insurance Documents.
Maps and Plans of your house & the local area.
Architectural Plans (if available).
Wills & Probate Records.
Old Photographs and Newspapers.
Parish, Estate and Manorial Records.
The enormous variety of historic houses of England are a huge part of our heritage. They play an integral part of the make up of our towns and countryside, most of them with an unknown past. It is not just castles & manor houses that have an interesting past, old cottages, miners dwellings, farm houses and Victorian terraces all have their story to tell.
Use our contact form or call us or request a call back. The first step is a free telephone consultation with one of our experienced House History Researchers to establish what you're looking for. We check that we are able to do uncover your house history before asking for any money.
