Then came a hawker named Jesse James in 1851, followed by labourer Jasper James in 1861 and then John James, a garden labourer in 1871. A hawker named Henry Gray lived here in 1881, followed by a mason's labourer called Henry Wooldridge and his wife and three children and then a rural postman George Goffe, who lived at the property with his wife and two boys in 1901.
