Trying to find out any information on Eastham House Eastham, especially from when Birkenhead Corporation Public Assistance took over from Eastham Urban District Council in 1930's, seems that their is very little information about the building in the Records office in Birkenhead.

There's something in the cheshire archives ....

Envelope marked Mrs. L. Parry, 71 Ferry Road, Eastham P195/15/7 1925-1960

These documents are held at Cheshire and Chester Archives and Local Studies Service

Contents:
Contains Carlett Park sale particulars and plan, 1925; Eastham House Estate sale particulars, 1928; newscutting, 1960 with part of article on Eastham, 1960


There are numerous references on the internet to the occupants from 1800 to at least 1910. Some big names there!

Hi I started serving my time as an apprentice plumber on Eastham house in the 1970s,at that time the property had been empty for quite a few years and the company I worked for had won the contract to turn house,out houses and annexe into 38 flats for the then Merseyside Improved Houses,Now known as Riverside Housing.We spent a couple of years at Eastham House and the building was amazing to work in.Cellers, attics,stables and some fantastic old craftsmanship,including carvings around entrance halls and staircase in panels of if I remember Charles Dickens life story.Barrel arches in cellers where particularly well built and where a nightmare to try and route pipework through.My work mates and myself all saw some very strange things while on site,things we couldnt explain,Im not a ghost believer but some things especially noises defied explanation.We worked there during the 3 day week power cuts with sometimes only single light extension leads which wasnt fun if you found yourself working on the top floor on your own.We heard many stories of the property from the gardener whos name was Jack,and we scoured the old tipping areas many times during lunch breaks picking up some old pieces of silver and old bottles,quite a job.
