I have found my gg grandparents (SHEARD-William & Margaret, plus 2 children Phoebe & ?) living at this address in the 1901 census, but I'm not sure yet where they were before that. I have ben to visit the 2 houses recently and found from the curator at the Leece museum, that it's the Peel Heritage Trust that have them in keeping. Not sure what will happen to them though. Apparently no 9 has quotes from the bible written all over the walls??
If anyone can help further................Thanks, Mandy
