Thornbury Roots began as a study of all the older houses in Thornbury street by street. We have at least one webpage on each of the older properties in Thornbury, listed according to the street it is in and the modern day house number. If you are interested in a particular street or a property please click on one of the street names below and follow the links to the house number. If the property has a name, such as “Lion House” or “The Swan” it is possible to enter that name in the search bar above instead. You can even use the search bar to type in an address e.g. “18 Gloucester Road”. Don’t forget to use the quotation marks.
Street names have of course changed throughout the years. If you have found your ancestors in a Census for example you may not find the street you want in the list above. We have listed as many old names as we could and have shown their modern equivalents. Click here to see the list of old street names
If you are thinking of visiting Thornbury to see where your ancestors once lived we may be able to help you find the property you want. Please contact us using the Contact button on the menu bar. If we are available, we are usually very happy to arrange to meet you and to show you around our town. Thornbury Museum is also a good source of information. Please contact the Museum before your visit where possible.
