Charlie Hulme's History Website

[Back to Charlie's index page]

Here I share the results of my family history researches, most of which so far have been into my mother's side and in particular the Hill family, who hailed from the Kettleshulme area on the Cheshire - Derbyshire border. The links will appear under headings below as I get them prepared and written. - Charlie Hulme, Stockport UK, 2017.
