There are also good local history websites for three nearby villages: Coleshill, Hyde Heath and Chalfont St Giles

What we cannot do is to research the history of your house for you.  However, click here for a very interesting article by a couple who have researched the history of their house in Whielden Street in great detail and have some practical advice.   There are also two very helpful articles which explain how the Censuses in Amersham were organised and the way the town was split into districts.  If you do find any more information or photos, please do use the “CONTACT US” button at the top of the screen to let us know.

See the many buildings in Amersham Old Town which were built by the Drake family.

Have you seen the virtual exhibition of

George Ward’s photos from 1880 to 1930?
