House History Research. We are house dectives who will research the history of your house.




How old is my house? Who has made their home here and how did they live?

We will research the history of your house.



The ordinary historic houses of England are perhaps the most underestimated part of our heritage. They are everywhere; an integral part of the fabric of our towns and countryside, most of them with an unknown history. However, the potential is so often there to trace who has lived in them and to discover the part that these people and their house have played in the development of their locality. It is not just large country houses that have an interesting past: timber-framed cottages and Victorian terraces also have their story to tell.

We can uncover this story and bring to life
the people who have made their home in your house.
