Trove Tuesday

Trove Tuesday – Louisa Mulder (nee House)

This week I am featuring articles for my ex-husband’s 2x great grandmother, Louisa Mulder, nee House.

Last week I featured articles for her husband, Thomas Mulder, who owned the Duke of York hotel in Humffray street.  This first article gives some more information about Thomas and Louisa.

The next article I found was for the sale of Louisa’s household effects after she died.
