Any information anyone has on Jacob and the Hook family in regards to my house would be greatly appreciated. Similarly any information on "Yer-Tiz" would be awesome.

Looking for Jacob and Matila HOOK using FamilySearch, so sadly can be a little vague wrt precise location;

Searching this forum for related prior threads, we can find the above and earlier Census data for Jacob and his family here.

FamilySearch also has;

Can see why I couldn't find him in the 1911 census;

So should be able to find Matilda in 1911 Census;

1911 West Dean, Monmouthshire, England, United Kingdom
Matilda Hook Head Female 52 Widow. Bream, Gloucestershire
William Hook Son Male 20 COAL MINER HEWER. Whitecroft, Gloucestershire
Henry Hook Son Male 17 ASST GROCERS THOPE. Whitecroft, Gloucestershire
Stanley Hook Son Male 15 LABOURER UNDERGROUND. Whitecroft, Gloucestershire
Clare Hook Daughter Female 13 SCHOOL. Whitecroft, Gloucestershire
Kate Hook Daughter Female 11 SCHOOL. Whitecroft, Gloucestershire

I wonder if someone could please search for Matilda in the 1939 Register, to see if she was still at "Yer tiz" ?

Thanks both, unfortunately I should have made clear I already have amassed all the information freely available online.

The main question I need answering is the original name of the propert.
