You can search for the other surnames.
Make sure you enter them like this  " Davidson Pandy Mill " eg, without the " "  you will get hits for all the words.
I`m sure you find something useful.

Many thanks

Luckily I found this great resource quite early on and to date have 173 articles and 91 adverts spread across multiple newspapers, but I am regularly going back and searching other leads.

I find that it often produces too many returns and I have sometimes patiently checked 2000 or 3000 as I can't seem to narrow down to a whole name like William Evans instead it returns all the Williams and all the Evans......any tips?

 Search the whole name as  - " William Evans" using the " around the search term  " .  Then you should get the exact phrase you searched for.

Hi
My parents owned Old Pandy Mill up until approx 2002 from approx 1974. I'm afraid I don't know much of the history.

Wow, thank you for commenting....from what I have found so far is Gerald and Pamela Margaret Lyon purchased the house in 1976 and sadly died in 2000 and 2002 respectively, when the house was then sold to Chris Bocking.

Do you live locally? Are you doing your family history? I would love to know any think you know about the house - did you stay here or visit or have special memories?

I would love to see any photos you are prepared to share? Did you know any of the neighbours, what their names were? etc....

You are most welcome to call in if you want at any time,

Many thanks, Nigel
