Does anyone know how you can trace back who lived in your house to when it was built? I would love to trace it back to Victorian times when the house was first built.

Thank you for all the help, I'll start tracing. I did this once before with an old Tithe map and found the people who had the land on the house had the same surname as me. Wonder what I will find this time.

our own house is quite new, we are the second owners.
One of the houses i grew up in was built on land where other houses had once stood, it is very interesting to look at the names of the people in the deeds.
Also my father in laws house was down as being in Walton on the hill in Liverpool, a place name that seems to have vanished in modern times !.

Our house was once called "Deva House" and was occupied for some 30 years by a Mr William Bell at the turn of the 20th Century

Inspired by this thread i have now looked at the deeds for my Father in laws house.

The location is down as "Walton on the hill in the county of Lancaster",
It was also owned by John Roberts MP (flint) for a while in the 1880's, the deeds also mention him being a timber merchant as well as an M.P !.
There is also mention of a deed dated 1828, but i can't go back that far with the paper work i have !.
One interesting thing.... on the small map of the property location it shows "pasture" to the south west !!!!. Last time i was there i can't remember seeing any cows !!!.

Our house was built around 1887,we are the 4th owners. The first was a 'ships captain'.Two spinster sisters lived here for around 50yrs.The house had become rundown and a woman bought it for a song and did it up cheaply. We bought it at the beginning of the 80s when prices sored.The surveyor said that he felt it was over priced but, due to the regeneration plans for New Brighton it would be a good investment! Hey ho 20yrs later and it's just about happening.

Just moved into my property and after a bit of time researching Gores 1900 Directory found it was once a school for young ladies run by a Mary Elizabeth Brown. None of the rooms are what you would call classroom sized. Mary moved here from London with her stepfather who traded in silk. Would love to see what the property like around this time
