Probably put there by the joiner who laid the floor. It use to happen quite a lot, when I first moved in to my house 38 years ago and I renewed my windows, the originals were signed and dated by the fist person who put them in. I in turn signed, dated and nailed a penny to he new one's I put in, the only trouble was I took them out and renewed them again, so no great joy in finding out who put them in.

I found It interesting when I used to work on old houses all the names and dates on the walls over the years beneath the wallpaper.
Thinking back to how it must of been years ago with no television or games consoles, people didn't have as much as we have now.

What became of those people?

Where are they now?

Like the names in the rocks in the new Brighton smugglers caves going back years or the bidston tunnels.

It is interesting.

You can find the History of your house by going to the archives.
You can also try searching the names on google or your house address.

Good luck, let us know how you get on.

happy
