House History

This page gives brief examples of the kind of research I undertake which can be covered by the umbrella of Local History.

Charting the history of an early 20th-century factory which proved to have been constructed to build experimental 'engineless airplanes'.

Detailed history of a commercial property in Christchurch which turned out to have been an early 17th century Mercer's house rebuilt from a 'hovel or slaughter house'.

Please feel free to contact me if you have a commission you would like to discuss.
