Hi folks. My grandmother Annie Trobe lived with her aunt Mary Davidson at Pasture House, Broomhill, in the late 1920s. Does anyone know whereabouts this house was? Thanks.

I can see a John Trobe and Mary Davidson at Pasture House Broomhill on the 1921 census. Moving through the returns either side as loaded on 'Findmypast' are addresses at 'Coronation Terrace' and 'Farm Cottages'. So maybe near to those? (there's a thread somewhere on here regarding 'Coronation Terrace', AKA 'The Tin Pots'.

It looks like Amble auctioneer Ballantyne probably auctioned off some house contents for that address in 1937.

Could this be your grandparents in 1917? just a mile or so from North Broomhill
It may be why she went to live with her Aunt.
