Introduction

There is much confusion, pre-1903, as to who lived where: addresses of 1, 1a, 1b and 3 St Phillans Place were used for 4 houses and a shop. They were all occupied by tenants, lodgers and boarders. Unless there is census or valuation roll proof, residents could be present in any of the properties. The houses concerned are 4 Cupar Road, 6 Cupar Road, 1 St Mary's Lane and 3 St Mary's Lane.
