Notation: * implies the original name was written as a contraction but has been written in full here to allow easier searching and identification. For example: Wm = William, Geo = George, Jas = James, Rich = Richard

NB: Swaithling, now spelled Swaythling

In addition there was a directory covering businesses in Southampton (the old town, not the present city boundary). Listed below are those individuals with addresses within the parish. Some of these are given above, but some are not. Many Highfield business owners would have had premises in Southampton (or at least outside the parish) and those are not included here as it is not always possible to identify them.
