Jon Freeman BS: Who first lived in your house/pad ? (29) RE: BS: Who first lived in your house/pad ? 05 Jun 21


Not the first owner but Peter Thomas, a former Secretary of State for Wales once owned the first property my parents had in North Wales. There was a bit of confusion about that house and I read a suggestion online that it had formerly both been a shop and a pub. I donít believe either of these suggestions. There had been a pub, which was probably in ruins by 1900, in the grounds but what remained of this building became the garage for the new house.

I believe the house I live in now started life as a grain store. It had what we use as the living room added in the 60s and Iíve met someone who said he was in charge of this part. One older person with one of the local taxi companies used to refer to our place as "the piggery". The pigsties are in the field behind us. We use one set of 5 and the other set which are further up the field are pretty well covered with blackthorn, etc.
