Family History of The Weaver’s House
Come and find out about some of the families who lived here.
The house dates back to medieval times and has been restored to its 1540 appearance. You can experience the house as weaver John Croke and his family would have seen it and find out about their lifestyle by joining a tour or talking to our volunteers on any of our Open Days. But the house, and the terrace it is part of, has been home to many families over the centuries.
Our Family History themed day will include some special talks, a guest stall from Coventry Family History Society, and the opportunity to research connections that you or your family may have with the house or terrace. This Open Day will be celebrating the families who lived in the terrace, and if you or your relatives lived in one of the houses or courts then we would love to hear from you! If you would like to get in touch in advance please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
As well as the usual refreshments, weaving and spinning, and tours of the house* during the day, we will also have a special Family History talk and a reprise of last year’s popular Spon Street walk. These two events are free, but booking is required (details are below)
The house will be open from 11am until 4pm, entry is free. Refreshments are available.
