Thanks to John Lacey Heritage warden for helping me with some of my research.

The earliest Partridge in Mowsley is that of a Benjamin died 1829. He married Eleanor and had a son Charles b1828 (myGt Gt Grandad) , grandson Thomas 1869, and great grandson Charles who was born in 1891 and died 1977, being the last Partridge to date to live in Mowsley.

One of the oldest houses in Mowsley in known as the "The Nook" or "Nook Yard" this is where Albena partridge lived until her death in 1960 at which time it was declared unfit for human habitation! It has recently been fully restored and is now a listed building. It originally had only two rooms, one up and one down and had a later scullery added during the 19th century.
