Charles Tidmarsh Dando lived at Portland Square, together with his first wife, Clarissa (nee Spiers). They were there from at least 1841 and possibly from the time they were married in 1837. They first lived at number 13. By the time of the 1861 census the couple lived at number 26 with their two children, Charles Joseph Dando and Clarissa Emmeline Dando (who later became Clarissa E Houston).

Also, Charlers' father, Joseph Dando the elder (born abt. 1781), with a number of Charles' siblings, were at number 26 Portland Square, in 1841. Presumably Charles and Clarissa moved in after Joseph moved to Ashley Down.
