An exact location of your house would be necessary to be able to help at all. Can you identify it on a modern map? Also, why do you think it was built in 1850? Do you have some information already?

I would suggest going to Geoff Gwatkin's site at http://geoffgwatkinmaps.co.uk and buying a map from him that covers the appropriate area (you might have to ask him which is the correct one). The maps come with a list of land owners and would be a good place to start researching the house history. The maps date mostly from the 1840s though so, if the house was built in 1850 it might not show it. But it might still show who owned the land it was built on even if the house wasn't there.
