WILLAND RESIDENTS IN THE TIVERTON DIRECTORY OF 1894/5

 

The Tiverton Directory was unusual in naming those inhabitants who live in rented accommodation and who are normally omitted from other directories. People who owned their own property were listed separately under the PRIVATE description - the other people who lived in the village were described as COTTAGERS and in many instances, their trade is also shown.
