Interesting subject! As a boy I lived in Roborough near Plymouth, which was owned by Sir Massey Lopes, Lord Roborough. When a new house was built late 19th/early 20th Century it was allocated a number and the address was Roborough Village, near Plymouth. On occasions, a new house would be next completed in Bickleigh village, over a mile away and still in the Roborough estate and it was often given the next number. Those were the days!
