Some examples of group members’s explorations:
Where and when did Hove begin and how did it grow from a hamlet of 101 souls in 1801 into a town of 90,000 covering an area nine times that of the old Hove parish ? Click HERE for Rob Doe’s introduction to the development of Hove. Contact Rob HERE.
For much of the 19th and early 20th Centuries Women far outnumbered men in Hove. One reason for this was the large number of female servants employed in its upmarket houses.
John Henshaw has crunched the numbers and provides interesting comparisons with other towns. See HERE the graphs that illustrate the changing age and gender structure of Hove and HERE to find the actual figures. Contact John HERE.
