Derbyshire / Re: Finding the History of a House

Thank you  very very much
Now it's getting really interesting

We know most of the local neighbours who have lived in Hammersmith most of there lives have always tthought the house was built as a Flour or at least some kind of mill

However I've been under the house and there is now hole in the ceiling of the tunnel where a wheel might have been fitted same area above inside all sealed off

Also there is never enough water in the Brook deep enough or flowing fast enough to turn a wheel

It may have been an idea to build as a mill but ended up being a house

Regards n thanks again

Peter

Thank you very very much for that newspaper article
Really interesting and a good start for a search

At least we now know the name of the house to be correct and used for a long time

Thank you again

Hi

There are other houses on Lowes Hill but they are not close enough to Brook House

I think the problem with searching for the house is the Hammersmith Hamlet built by Butterley Engineering Company

Hello

I live in a house that's called Brook House most probably built around 1860
There is a Brook that actually runs under the house!


Address has always been Brook House (as far as I know) Lowes Hill Hammersmith Ripley Derbyshire

Hammersmith was a small village built by the Butterley company and I know Brook House was built as part of this village

I've tried to use FindmyPast but cannot find any info relating to my house

Would some kind person please give me some pointers on where to look in the census from 1841 to 1911 and the 1939 Register as it would be good to know who has lived at Brook House over the years

Regards
Peter

Hello

Would some kind person please do a search for:

Thomas Leslie Howard
Born 20 Dec 1889 Wandsworth

Need to find his birth and christening dates if available hopefully with his parents named.

He should be on the 1891 1901 and 1911 census

Thank you in advance to every one who helps
