Comment
Samuel Shepherd outside his shop on Town Street, he is listed in Kelly's Directory of 1889 as a grocer, provision dealer, assistant overseer and collector of income tax.
His task as an overseer would be to administer funds to the poor and needy of the Parish or decide who would be considered as needing accommodation in the Parish Union Workhouse which became the old Otley Hospital premises.
