Just found out that Park House on Burton Road, then called Main street, was built for my Great x 2 Uncle, John Godfrey. Godfrey House was built by his older brother Samuel and they were in the lace manufacturing business being the owners of Godfrey Brothers Lace on High Pavement, Nottingham.

My family must of been fairly successful.
