    "Hampsthwaite Bridge over the River Nidd. Built in 1598, rebuilt 1640, alterations made in the 19th century.

We cannot be sure that the entries in the returns for 1851 and 1861 relate to Greenside since no property is named in the entries. However, the second of those entries lists a large household consistent with the size of the property and there is reason to believe that the known tenant James Dalby is the same person described as the head of the household.

Dalby's name does not appear in the 1871 census but a medical practitioner (Saunders) does and it is assumed from the position of his entry in the census list that he lived at Greenside.

Dr Saunders later moved to Bilton Garth (now Thimbleby House) in Church Lane and is shown at that new address in the census return for 1891.
