History

Rates Book Information:
This house was formerly 32 Grey Street, renumbering occurred in 1935/36.
This house is first recorded in the Post Office Directories in 1911 when it was occupied by William McKay. It has not been established if he was the owner of the property when it was built. He occupied the house until 1914. Further research of certificates of title and rates books for the period would help to establish the date of construction and the original owner of the property. Later occupants were Joseph Sanderson, Mrs E. Mercer and Mrs A. E. McKay between 1930 and 1940. This last occupant may have had some familial relationship with the original occupant.
