Welcome to rootschat Penny.

Like others, I would like to know when he lived there. Was he there in the 1911 census for example? If he is locatable at the place in a census then it is relatively easy to work out which "Hampt".

If you let is know dates and his name we will try to help you.  :)

ScouseBoy, googling the postcode will not help work out where "Hampt" is or was. You need the address to get the postcode, and the address /exact location is what Penny is attempting to establish.  ::) Postcodes were introduced in the late 50s/60s.

Added: If he is still living, then the dates he lived there will obviously be more recent. We are not allowed to name living people either, so keep that in mind.  :)

Many posters  have already given  many web address  of maps.

In my experience, with my county council,   I would suggest that you look at www.cornwall.gov.uk      and find their map page.

Using Streetmap (http://www.streetmap.co.uk), searching for Higher Hampt will allow you to view the current OS map.

   And  in addition to that, there will probably be  the extra choice   of getting a Satellite  view.

Hampt seems to be the name of a number of settlements.  This map shows Higher Hampt, Middle Hampt & Lower Hampt:

All three places still marked on the modern OS map.  I think that your grandfather lived in one of these hamlets.  This might be more difficult than it initially appeared.  :-\

As noted, by Nell there are several "Hampts" - we need to establish which one.  ::)

At reply #2 Girl Guide helpfully gave the postcode of Hampton Manor. It has since been discovered that there are several "Hampts" so the one she found may or may not be the Hampt that Penny is looking for.

We need Penny to return with further information to try to determine which Hampt she is referring to. :)

Thank you all so much for your replies and I will click on the links given.  Just to say that in 1757 William Nattle married Jane Palmer in Stoke Climsland Church.  Then Jacob Nattle was born and died there (1772-1834).  He married Mary Williams and one of their children was William Henry Nattle (1813-1879). He married Elizabeth Hodgkin Fitz and in the 1881 Census they lived at Middle Hampt.  Another William Henry was born in 1845 in Stoke Climsland and died in Hampt Cottage in 1925.  He farmed 250 acres. His son, my grandfather, Harold Rundle Nattle, was aged 5 yrs in that census. He became a doctor and went out to Basutoland, Africa. Wm Henry jun. in 1891 Census was a yeoman of Lower Hampt.  So all those Hampts are of interest.  Thanks so much for the help and to know the properties are still on the OS maps is so encouraging.  Members of my family visited them years ago, so I think the houses are still the same ones.  I don't know the street address and hope to find this out.

Hi everyone,

I'm not sure if I will be able to help with any questions, but we have not long moved to Middle Hampt Farmhouse, our house used to be part of a larger farm which has since been spilt and the barns developed, I would love to know more about it's history and the people that lived here.
