What deeds do you have?
Why is the exact age relevant to renovation? Is it listed?
Do the 1845 houses have dates on them? Do they look like yours?
if it is registered at HM Land Registry get the offical copies of title plan and register. It may refer to other docs which the land reg hold.
The Ordnance Survey have old maps which may show the area years ago. They go back in stages. Some very early maps are much less detailed.
There is no definitive answer to your question I am afraid, it is simply a case of researching as much as you can. That is why you havent found one.
Find out where your Local Records Office is and pay a visit. You will usually have to make an appointment and allow several hours if not days to find what you are looking for. the archvist will usually be very helpful! It is fascinating stuff and very absorbing but they will often only let you have access to one doc at a time. They will take copies for you for which they charge.
We had the same pproblem looking for mine records up here in N Wales. The rcords office had everything we wanted.
If it helps, please accept so that I get credit. Thanks
