Looking through old maps and plotting the history of Hunts Cross, Garston & Woolton

Have looking through map versions going back to 1840 to find out the history of south particular Hunts Cross and the area we live in. There seems to have been a place called Honey Hall and Rose Farm where we live now although I have never seen any trace of it when I walk round nowadays.
