I think it is natural that when you live in an old house you wonder about its history. Who built it, who lived in it and how has it eveloved and developed over the years. It provides continuity and connection with the past and a reminder that the future will continue when we have gone. Combining this curiosity with our genealogy research we have dug into the archives to find out who lived here during the nineteenth century. In this we were greatly assisted when we finally registered the property and took possession of the old deeds. In this section we have presented the information we found and provided copies of the actual historical documents we obtained.
We have traced the previous occupants and owners of Ladymoor Gate from 1806 to 1921 with reference to wills, parish records, births, deaths and marriage records and the title deeds. This section contains the information we have uncovered and copies of some of the original documents.
