This ceased when the final Lord Cowper sold his lands, and some of his possessions at auction. It is possible to list nearly everyone who lived in the cottage from but it is possible that the censuses do not capture everyone correctly for instance those people who are not in their houses on census day.
That said they do give an indication of the number living in The Cottage. In there were 12 residents. Now if those 12 people were living Figure 2: 'The Old Cottage' - It is possible to make out two separate roofs that in half of the cottage building might indicate two separate cottages. This history is not easily traceable because the historical sources have their limitations and some of authors do not provide references..
It would also explain the double chimney of the cottage itself, and the two-section roof which indicated two residences. For such a small 17th Century building to have two does appear excessive, even if the cottage was one residence it would still probably have had only one door.
The Victorians started to become more and more obsessed with documentation so more documents are available. In Miss C. Sharp and Miss M. Sharp are recorded as residentsvii, in John Halsey were known to be living there as well, but in Misses C.
Sharp are still recorded to be living in their Cottage.
The Residence of one spacious new houses. It would have been of the cottages can be seen here.
Ebenezer Howard was certainly onto something when he proved that Letchworth Garden City would be a town like no other. His construction of the second garden city was not Letchworth however and Welwyn Garden City has always had a character of its own.
The landscape changed between the 19th and 20th Centuries. Using just three maps showing exactly the same area of Figure 4: 'The Old Cottages' facing east on Bridge Road, note the two ponds on both sides of the road. It presents the growth of business, production, and commerce. By the landscape had minor changes but had not, at this point, been transformed into what we can see today. Viewing the map one can see just how much farmland, and greenery there would have been.
An intriguing point to note as well is that the map shows 2 very large ponds beside the cottage, the smaller pond to the left of cottage was approximately the same size as the building, the larger pond on the north side of the road was approximately times larger than the cottage building.
On the OS map that has all changed, the ponds are gone, the road is properly tarmacked and a large sawmill is situated right opposite the old cottage.
The on-going construction of 2 small dwellings to the south of the cottage and another dwelling to the east of the cottage would be in view when looking out of the windows. Further south west, major building developments had happened, Handside is only known as a Green and Welwyn Garden City is growing from strength to strength. It is known however that the Saw Mill was there before World War One, as there are historical accounts of German Prisoners of War working there during the period.
It is unknown what happened to them once the Great War had finished. The Saw Mill definitely consumed a large amount of space on the south side of the railway line, and eventually it had its own sidings.
The Mill quite literally ate away at the Forest and also the view that the residents would have once had. The green and pleasant land of Handside became filled with Garden City dwellings, completely changing what had been before.
In the space of a little over 40 years there had been well over 80 houses built on the farm land and new roads built in the area: Russellcroft Road and Guessens Road to name just two.
Ludgate would have made of the monumental changes to the lands that surrounded them. There is evidence that shows Lord Cowper pulled down other cottages in the area, so why were the little residence s allowed to stay?
John Halsey and Lord Cowper are the people to thank for its survival.
There is some evidence to suggest that when the aged John Halsey heard that his house would be pulled down, like others in the area, he met with Lord Cowper and expressed his fear that he would be too old to find another place to live if his lordship pulled the cottage down.
