History: the house is not shown on the tithe map of 1842, but an Elm Cottage is included in the 1851 census return in close proximity to the Roman Catholic Chapel, the toll house and Loughborough. In 1861 the occupant was Stephen Fisher, cashier, with his wife, five children and three young female servants. He seems to have been a person of some standing. In 1871 one son was an undergraduate at Balllol College, Oxford, and another a medical student; In 1881 he was described as chief accountant at the lace factory.
No8, Higher Loughborough, which is attached to this building, is not included in this list entry.
