The following is an analysis by Alan Forsdick of a house sale in 1874. Just added to this article is the sale notice from the Derby Mercury containing some interesting details. In the list of the buyers provided by Alan I think that the John George Jimms(?)  mentioned may be George Timms mentioned in the 1846 gazetteer (farmer) and 1847 post office directory (grazier). You can see here the sale notice from the Derby Mercury of July 15th 1874. It contains valuable information about owners residents in 1874 and names of streets and fields etc. These include :-
