Parkview Estate - Cowper Road - south side, odd numbers

Tracing occupants since the first houses were built in 1883

Information from Kelly's Directories 1900-1974.

The last listed occupant was still in residence in 1974. After that there is no easily accessed data. Generally directories were published at two-yearly intervals, but with a long gap from 1914 to 1922 when there were many changes of residents. + indicates that we do not know when the property changed hands.

PLEASE CONTACT US WITH ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT LISTED RESIDENTS - AND SUBSEQUENT RESIDENTS. WE WOULD BE ESPECIALLY INTERESTED IF YOU HAVE DEEDS SHOWING IF YOUR HOUSE WAS BUILT BETWEEN 1984 AND 1900.

Photos were mostly taken in August 2019 by R Ross.
