For the past 7 years I have been researching the Houseman name in the Ripley, Clint, Hampsthwaite,
Birstwith, Menwith, Darley, Dacre and Felliscliffe areas of Nidderdale in Yorkshire.
Although originally just trying to find all about my own line I have found it hard to resist adding information that
I came across on any of the other Houseman lines as I made contact with other people doing the same research.
I would like to thank every one who has contributed to the research, in particular:
Jane & Ruth Simpson, Colin Houseman,
Ruth Houseman, Michael Ellison, & Edward Austin.
With this in mind I have decided to publish all the research so far, on this web site dedicated to the Houseman name.
For information on Housemans and their relatives click on the Database ( on the left hand side of this page ).
This database contains all the information from census returns, birth, marriage and death records as well
as photographs of people, places and headstones as well as scans of documents.
Please feel free to sign the Guest Book.
Please use the links on the left hand side of this page to find useful facts and
information about the Housemans and the Dale in which they lived, worked and died.
( If any one has any photographs, certificates or documents relating to the Housemans
that they would like to share would they be kind enough to let me have a copy )
If you have any other information concerning any of the individuals contained in this
web site or the database or if any of the information is incorrect please let me know so
that it can be rectified.
Please enjoy viewing the information as much as we have enjoyed researching and
collating it and thank you to everyone who has sent me copies of certificates and
photographs and for allowing me to use them on the web site.
C Gary Houseman
