Anything to get me off the starting block would be brill.
Thank you and Take Care
The house is on the 1939 register. Living there is Hugh Hutchinson
and his wife Alice. Hugh is a carpenter and joiner.
The house is named on an 1892 OS map.
Newspaper ads refer to the house by name and suggest a family called BALL was living there in the 1890s and 1900s: Thomas and Mary Ann (Thomas died before 1901). In 1901 the house appears to be 55 Main Road (without the name in the census). In 1891 their only address is 'Handsworth'
Mary Ann has two children in 1901. One is Gerard who was killed in action in 1917.
