Wilds Family History

Postby pamf » Tue Jan 04, 2011 6:27 pm

Hi

My maiden name was Wilds and have thought for several years the line died with my father, but during a recent search I have found James Wilds (1901 Census) followed by his son George (1911 Census) owned (or managed) a farm at 30 Church Street, Warsop. Would love to know more, we do not live too far away, does anything remain of the farm and would there be anything of the farm to see if we visit?

Thank you

Kind Regards,
Pam

I'm sure that 30 Church Street is the adress of the old stone cottages at the side of the Bingo Hall.
There is no longer a farm, but they may have originally been the farm cottages.

Hi Pam,
as you can see, the building still stands. It is now two cottages, although, not sure, but i suspect at one time it was just one farm house. There is only a small garden, and beyond that is the old Eastwoods builder's yard.
The yard will soon vanish under the relentless onslaught of Tesco, but the cottages will remain. (That's the latest anyway).

I'll try and put a link to a google earth picture later.

Here's a quicky pic

After makng further enquiries, i've got to correct my previous post.

That block of cottages was origionaly 3 cottages for the farm workers.
No 28 was nearest to the (now) bingo.
No 30 was the middle one and the left hand side was 30A

The current occupant moved into No30 in 1969. After a few years, the occupant in No28 moved and Nos 28 and 30 were then made into one cottage by those in No30 (early 1970's ) they retained their No30 for postal reasons.

So, at the time i question, No30 would have been the center cottage.
The current or the previous occupant's can't remember any Wilds

Another quick update
It was, as i suspected, one farm house and it was converted into 3 cottages in 1921.
The farmer was a Mr Hinds
