CHELTENHAM PRINTERS

My family include the Hailing(s) or Hayling(s), lots of whom were from Cheltenham. My gg uncle was Thomas HAILING who lived with his large family at Bromland (or Broomland) House, Oxford Passage, Cheltenham. He was apprenticed to Thomas WILLEY a well known local figure and chartist who lived there before him. Thomas WILLEY was born in Bristol c.1795 and died in 1861. The HAILING name was also spelt HAYLING and several of the male Haylings were boot/shoemakers and cordwainers in Cheltenham. I've never visited the town but would love to know whether Bromland House and Oxford Passage is still standing. Perhaps even to see a photograph. I believe the printing business survived until 1956.
