Northop/flint local knowledge needed
« on: Thursday 29 October 15 16:29 GMT (UK) »
On the 1841 census, the Lewis family lived in ALLT VOCE or ALLT VOICE( 2 different spellings).On a recent trip to the area I was directed from Northop on the Flint road, past the school & shops & told that it was a lane on the R.
I was unable to find it.
Have contacted the Flint Archives & they had no knowledge either.

Any good researchers in the area have any ideas ????

Here your are - http://maps.nls.uk/view/102342357 - go half way up on right hand edge and scroll in a few inches/cm

It's Allt-Vois (Farm)

Still there - Allt Vois Farm, Northop Road, Flint Mountain, Flint CH6 5QG

You can download information from landregistry.gov.uk using the name plus post code. But it may only give information from when they went digital. Any older information may not have been scanned.

Apologies - forgot to say "A very warm welcome to Rootschat"

Also, not a "local genealogist". So, treat the info with due care!

Since the help I received from Rootschat members I have been in contact with the present owner of Allt Vois who has sent me some wonderful photos !

Thank you for putting me on the right road !
