Only people were keepers or caretakers as far as I am aware, I can't find any records of it being residential but who knows?

Keepers:-

Alexander Smarley (1764-1765) (Leasowe Upper)
John Bennet 1764- (Leasowe Lower)
Richard Wilding 1765-1771
Thomas Woods -1803
John Smith 1803-1830
John Jones 1830-1854
Ann Jones 1854-1867
Joseph Morgan 1867-1880
Thomas Bell 1880-1892
Thomas Williams 1892-1894
Mary Elizabeth Williams 1894-1908

caretaker:-

John Austin 1909-1920

18c dates are vague, 19c & 20c dates are well documented.

The Lighthouse was residential, taking 2 names from DD's list, John Austin and Thomas Ward Bell had their wives and children living with them. The Lighthouse had 7 rooms not including any Scullery or Bathrooms it might have had.

The last keeper (IIRC) was a widow who took over from her husband as keeper. The light was fuelled by coal which had to be carried to the top several times a day ! I can't remember all the details but it is worth doing the tour for the History as well as the views

I meant residential as in residential property ie not due to employment.
