Rev Blakemore was listed at the dwelling from 1914 until 1917. He returned to the USA and his son became a prominent theologian there. The Wises Post Office Directories show that from 1920 until the early 1930s Mr Henry Phillips resided at the subject dwelling. In 1926 a Building Licence was issued to Mr Phillips indicating that he also owned the property during this time. The Wises Post Office Directories indicate that there was a relatively high turn over of occupancy in the latter part of the 1930s. In 1940 Mrs Florence Kirby took up residency and remained at the dwelling until at least 1949. In 1972 a Building Licence was issued to a Mr Morgan for the construction of a verandah and a laundry.
