In 1854, John Juggins, who lived at The Mount, and Ann Juggins who lived at Mott House, were regarded as gentry alongside Rev Edward Elton.

In 1895, The Misses Tyndale were lining at 'The Lawn' which was an earlier name for Wheatley House.

With the information from the 1910 Revaluation Survey, it has been possible to find where nearly all the names in the 1911 Kelly Directory lived based on today's numbering. The posh place to live was Park Hill with five of the 'private residents' living there.
