Servants at Windsor Castle
« on: Saturday 27 December 08 08:59 GMT (UK) »
Hello

Does anyone know if there are any records of servants who worked at Windsor Castle ?

I am looking in particular for a Richard Woolhouse who may have worked there circa 1800 - 1817

Happy New Year all

Hi Dean,

I wrote to them a while back about one of my ancestors and received a very nice - and quick - reply. They hadn't found anything as it looks as if my ancestor must have ben a 'casual' worker in the King's kitchen rather than on the actual payroll, but I'm sure they'll look for your Richard and let you know.

Probably best to enclose an s.a.e.

I have made two enquiries regarding relatives employed at Windsor and had two prompt positive responses.
