Hounslow

'Chiswick House, built between 1726 and 1729 is one of the earliest and most important neo-Palladian villas in England ... By the 20th century, the House and Gardens were in decline and in 1929 the reduced estate was sold to Middlesex County Council. In 1948, ownership of the house passed to the Ministry of Works, which embarked on a restoration campaign aimed at returning the villa to its original size and design and the gardens to their original layout. Following a major restoration project, which finished in 2010 with £12m support from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, London Borough of Hounslow and English Heritage Trust formed the independent Chiswick House and Gardens Trust to unify the care of the House and Gardens ... Today we welcome over one million visitors every year. Our vision is simple – we want to be here for everyone, every day.'

'In July 1978 the Federation of Family History Societies co-ordinated the foundation of three family history societies to cover the City of London and the former county of Middlesex. From west to east, these were the West Middlesex Family History Society, the Westminster and Central Middlesex Family History Society and the London and North Middlesex Family History Society. This division continued until 2001 when the latter two societies combined forces to form what was renamed the London, Westminster and Middlesex Family History Society. West Middlesex Family History Society now covers 32 of the ancient parishes in the west and south-west of the ancient county of Middlesex.'
