Charlie Hulme's History Website

[Back to Charlie's index page]

This little corner  is where 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 came from the Kettleshulme area on the Cheshire - Debyshire border. Thers's not a great deal about Kettleshulme on the web as far as I can see, so I hope some of these documents will redress the balance. The links will appear under headings below as I get them prepared and written. - Charlie Hulme, Stockport UK, 2016.
