House History Through Time

House History Through Time

David Olusaga's New Series Starts Tuesday 26 May on BBC 2 at 21:00

 

This time the series goes much further back in history to an 18th Century house in Bristol.  Bristol has always been a multicultural/multi ethnic city and these stories have been some of the most interesting so far.

Episode 1 includes

  • A parish register entry for the baptism of a 3 month old child, Martha, who had been abondoned on the steps of our house in 1728, no indication of who the father was, but what hapened next to Martha?
  • A newspaper clipping headed RAN AWAY.  Thomas, probably a black servant ran away from 10 Guinea Street in 1759
