Nos. 3, 5 and 7 represented refronting and remodelling of timber-framed houses, but Nos. 9–17 were built on cleared sites, No. 17 by Henry Masterman (Guildhall, Parcel 344). Some of the staircases and grates were contemporary, but most of the internal fittings were of the 1820–30 period. Demolished 1959.
