Is "had got" the past form of "have / has got" in Bre English? And is it common? Or do British people simply use "had" instead of "had got"?
And are these sentences wrong?
I had got a very bad cold last week.
My house hadn't got a kitchen.
While 'had got' is possible as the past form of 'have got' in some cases, it is unnatural in others. It is usually safest to omit the 'got'.
Incidentally, in formal writing and speaking, some people still consider 'have got' to be inappropriate, even in the present tense.

I think that it should be 'had gotten'. While 'had got' might appear to be a logical progression from 'have got', it just doesn't sound right.
