Early history of the land

The 1911 electoral roll records ownership with Henry Woodward an absent landlord living in London.

The earliest Park accounts of 8 April 1921 record Ranmere owned by Miss Edith Clarke who then swapped Fairfield with Henry Woodward. For the 1920s and 1930s the tenants were Edward Twist Jones and his wife Henrietta and their family.

By 1945 the tenants were Mrs Annie Carbutt with daughter Betty and son-in-law Frederick Oldham who post WW2 built no:44. (Annie Carbutt had owned The Limes no:25 in the early 1920s). Annie Carbutt took on Eva Roberts as her live-in housekeeper after the death of Miss Longworth Dames and the subsequent sale of The Garden House (no:28)

Home to the Pye family from the mid-1960s until the late-1980s. Mr Pye served on the UPPA committee for much of their period of residence.
