Study Description 

Initially a small Anglo-Saxon settlement thought to be named for being the homestead ‘ingaham’ of ‘Billa’s’ people, the area was traditionally part of County Durham. Billingham now forms part of the borough of Stockton-on-Tees.

By the 19th century Billingham was a small village, becoming the home of many wives, husbands, and children who attended its church and worked in its farms and later factories.
