red mail Origins Of Close House
My family comes from the villages and towns of the Auckland area and I am curious about the origins of 'Close House', a small village now part of Bishop Auckland. An 1825 traveller's account refers to a small group of houses, the farm and cottages of'Close House' in the Dean Beck valley. The farm was a detached portion of Bishop Auckland township, about 32 acres in area with a population of no more than 20. An 1857 map shows a large T-shaped building plus several smaller structures identifedas 'Close House', fields that straddle a small stream plus a water source identified as the 'Close House Well'.
