William Preston and his son Walter were both at work at Brompton in 1901 and still there in 1905. William was a platelayer and Walter was a porter. They lived in the Gate House next to Sawdon Station. William was married to Mary, who had another child called Lottie.
The Preston family had a boarder, Mr John Liveseed, who was also a porter at the station (only record of him in 1901 though).
