House and Family Historians

Discovering Heritage House Histories

Uncover the story of your house

What secrets lie behind your front door?

Do you ever sit in your kitchen and wonder about all the meals you have cooked, and over the years just who else has done the exact same thing?

Your house is a special place. It ages in layers, you lend it presence, and it exudes character. What stories lie within the walls? Who turned a key in the lock and opened its doors?

Our house histories shed light on the changing faces of your home. Let us uncover its secrets and tell you its story.


What our clients say

Very professional service, quickly and thoroughly done. Many thanks for your efficient input.”

“Discovering Heritage produced a family tree for my mums 90th Birthday earlier this month. It traced her fathers side of the family back to 1797. Being Northumberland born & bred it was fascinating to discover that 4 generations ago the family were living in London. It’s has been a wonderful voyage of discovery & mum was overwhelmed to receive it. A unique present & a legacy, she said. The presentation & graphics were fabulous, photos & census entries, profiles of each of the four generations of males. Thorough & meticulous research, beautifully presented. Thoroughly recommended.”
