    Hello,

    I’m trying to trace my great-grandmother. She was a seamtress in the Bishop’s palace, probably in about 1860. (She was born in 1845).

    Are there any staff lists that anyone is aware of?

    Many thanks,

    Catherine

  8. I would very much like to know who lived in Number 70, Farnborough Road, Farnham – built about 1890 I believe, three cottages in a little terrace, just up from where the Half Way House pub used to be. My son lives there now and he’d love to know the history of the house!
