Broxbourne Almshouses

Danny's great great grandmother was living in the almshouses at Broxbourne at the time of the 1891 census. The houses are still there - and can be seen in Google Street Views of Broxbourne. I also located a 1905 picture and details of the charity Dame Laetitia Monnson set up that erected the Almshouse in 1728.
