No 9 North Green

James Newson - Carrier. James, aged 63, lives here with his wife, daughter and three sons (C1881). He is still here as Carrier and Farmer with his wife and son, Ernest, at the 1891 census, but dies the following year aged 74.

Isaac Edwards - Farmer (C1891, K1896) Isaac was born in Westleton in 1843. In 1881 he is listed at No 13 North Green (no longer identifiable) as a farmer and rabbit catcher with a five-acre farm, a wife called Alice and their son, Thomas.

The 1891 census doesn't specify street numbers for North Green but Kelly's Directory locates him at No 9 five years later so it is fair to assume he moves here in about 1891 - 2. Now widowed, he lives with his widowed mother, Hannah, and his nephew and niece, George and Emily.(C1891)

Isaac Edwards - Farmer, Dairyman (C1901, K1908). It is a very full house... In addition to his nephew and niece, now in their 40s, he has been joined by a great nephew and niece, his widowed brother, Robert and an 18-year-old domestic servant, Lily Brown.

Isaac Edwards
- Dairyman (C1911) Isaac, now 69, is still living with the same extended family.

Cottages on North Green.(including today's number 9) in the latter part of the 19th Century. The cottages and the track beside them are clearly aligned as the main route to the church . At the far end of the cottages, the track forks off to the left towards the sea and the brick kilns along what is now Field Stile Road.
