Sad to only encounter her at her death, but it's not unthinkable that Elsie Allcock could have been the person who has lived the longest in a single house (either consecutively or fragmented).

Vidar Eide lives in the same house he was born in over 108 years ago, but I'm not sure if he's lived there for his entire life.

Florence Knapp (1873-1988) living in the same house for 110 years according to the Guinness Book. (2005 edition, I have it.)

Please forget about what I wrote in the private / trusted members only area of this forum. My mind has changed. (26 May 2022)
I hope that many members of the community will reconcile and more peaceful environment will come.

I believe the Andrade brothers lived in the same house their whole lives.

Willemina Hol (1898-2008) lived her entire life in the same house she was born in:

@jimjim00 Florence Knapp moved to a nursing home in August 1983, shortly before her 110th birthday. So Wilhelmina Hol appears to have lived in the same place for a longer period of time.

Albano Andrade appears to be triumphant in this regard, at least for now.

I had thought that Violet Brown may have spent most or all of her life in one residence, before her final move to a hospital, though of course it's some time now since she passed away. 

Perhaps it was only her married life.

If it was the latter then it may have only been around 100 years.

There's an ESO-validated Italian SC who's lived in the house she was born in all her life. (Documentation supports this.)

Overduidelijk misschien.

Maria do Couto Maia (1890-2005), the second-oldest person ever from Portugal, lived her whole life in the house where she was born and where she died. Her house was Nº313 of the street "Rua dos Lagos de Grijó", in Grijó, Porto.

@gabriel_pt My god, that has to be the record for longest residence in a single house. Is that right?

@josia9353 that's what it says in the article: 

"Morreu na passada segunda-feira, no número 313 da Rua dos Lagos, na mesma casa que a viu nascer." - "She died last Monday, at number 313, Rua dos Lagos, in the same house where she was born."

In her baptism record, it says that her parents were residents in the place of "Lagos" in the parish of Grijó. Currently this place is a street, called "Rua dos Lagos de Grijó". As such, I believe that she has lived her entire life in the same house. 

It was a little common in Portugal for people to live their whole lives in the house where they were born, even when they got married. My grandmother (80 years old) has lived her entire life in the house where she was born. When she got married, my grandfather went to live with her and her parents, and when they had children they always lived together in the same house where she lives today.

It is very likely that Mrs Couto has always lived in the same house.
