The Housemans of Nidderdale

About the Database
For the past 18 years I have been researching the Houseman name in the Birstwith, Clint, Dacre, Darley, Felliscliffe, Hampsthwaite, Hartwith, Menwith, Pateley Bridge, Ripley and Thornthwaite 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.
Please use the various links at the TOP of this page (Mobile) or the SIDE of this page (Desktop and Tablet) 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.
