The directory sometimes shows the nearest railway station to a village, and therefore repeats the name of the station master. An example is the three entries for James Atkins (the same person) who was the station master for Gunton, but Gunton station was more than 2 miles east of the village, in the parish of Thorpe Market, and was only a mile from Southrepps, so he was shown under all three places in the directory. Another example is Zacchaeus Goodale who is shown twice because Clenchwarton station was in the parish of Tilney All Saints.
Please check the directory itself for exact details.
