In early 1878, Mr Duncum, the Church school’s headteacher, and his wife had twin boys, they were given the middle names Wigram and Callender, we therefore assume that these two clergy must have been very well respected.

In 1881, Richard and Anna J. (b.1831, Odiham, Hants) were lodging with the Merchant family at 10, Tottenham Place, Clifton (District of Barton Regis). Richard was acting curate of Clifton parish church. 
Head of household was William R.F. Merchant, a non-practising physician and surgeon.
