Introduction

The numbering of premises is consecutive, Number One, High Street, starts with the first building at the southern end, western side of the street, the neighbouring property is Number Two, followed by Number Three and so on. This numbering pattern continues northwards and uphill until the High Street meets The Strait. The sequential numbering system then returns southward, back down the High Street on the eastern side, until reaching numbers 471-480, opposite number 1, High Street.

As further roads were added, yards demolished and railway lines built, the properties would be renumbered. So it may appear that some people are moving next door, when in fact it’s just the numbers have changed. All I can do is list the details I find in the Trade Directories, and hope no further renumbering takes place. I am using the current road layout to plot the addresses.
