Some of my husband’s ancestors lived in this street for at least thirty years. The 1841 census shows John Page, a watchmaker living in this street with his wife Sarah and 2 children Harriet & John. Sadly it does not say what number. The 1851 census shows him at number 14 [the black one] with his wife, son, daughter & her husband & child.

In 1853 Their son John was living at number 13 [the cream one] according to his marriage certificate.By 1861 John Page senior had died & his wife Sarah had moved. John junior died in 1860 and his wife Elizabeth & children were living at number 15 [the white one with the step].

  • I had Wiseman ancesters living at number 31. From memory (don’t have my notes to hand) it was in the 1820s. I think they had a riding school or Fly Company.

  • My GG Grandfather James Light had his tailoring business at No. 18 in 1858 and his brother George, a shoemaker, was at No. 21, whilst another brother Eli was at No. 22. By 1878 James and George were at No. 9 and No. 20 respectively. James later moved his business to 19 Cranbourne Street.

  • I now live at number 14 and inherited a ledger detailing who once lived here. I am happy to share that information.
