The Speer Family

by Natalie Adsett 4 November 2016

I am trying to find out some information about Walter and Fanny Speer (formerly Betts). They grew up at 70 and 80 Upper North Street respectively then when married (m 1890) lived in Clifton Terrace. Apparently they owned a hotel for spiritualists and I wondered if anybody knew if this was true or could give me any ideas where to look only I can’t find any information?

Would there be any archived local newspapers online?

Thank you.
