Many new houses are built on Houselands Fields

Between 1875 & 1880.

Permission is given by the Local Board for the building of numerous new houses as Houselands.  Applications are made by many different people; for two, four or more houses.  It is likely that Annison sold off parcels of land to interested parties in a piecemeal fashion.  It is difficult to work out where the houses are to be built as road names are not usually given.
