Building a house could often take many years, even decades
in some cases. This is the field to search for a house if you know
the date in which construction was started. This field is very
specific; broad searches are not possible; e.g., if you enter 1785 in the
field you will retrieve the records for houses that started construction
specifically in the year 1785.
Please note that many houses had additions, partial demolitions, and
renovations over the years. The start date here refers only to
the date in which construction on the main block was
commenced. If an earlier Tudor building existed, the majority of
which was demolished in the 18th century and replaced, incorporating Tudor
fragments, starting in 1753, the start date would be 1753.
Please remember that this database is a work-in-progress and that many,
many houses have yet to have date information entered.
