Bellhouse Family History Page

In 1992 I wrote a history of the Bellhouse family and published it under the title David Bellhouse and Sons, Manchester. Over the summer of 2000, I updated the book to submit to a worldwide family history contest run by the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies. My submission placed in the top 20 in the world among almost 200 completed submissions. Here is the updated history in pdf format. Comments and additions are always welcome at
