TIMELINE

17-19 The Vineyard

1771 Richardson Manor map shows the site to be owned by Late Michels Trust.
1842 Driver map shows a square brick house next door to No 15 and flanked by a line of wooden sheds along its other boundary.
 1861  Census: 2 Vine Cottage and 1 Vine Cottage listed. No 2 occupied by Charlotte Marlow, Launderess, her daughter and grandson; No 1 Thomas Mulberry, cabinet maker, and his wife a launderess.
1865 The OS map shows the house rebuilt into 2 units giving directly onto the road.
 1871 Census: 1 Vineyard cottages: Andrew Lintott, bricklayer, his wife and baby
2, Vineyard Cottages: James Patey, Gardener, his wife, a dressmaker, their 1 year-old son and the wife's sister (aged 9).
 1881  Census: 2 Vine Cottages: George Hillman, house painter, his wife and 4 children

 1891  Census: 2 Gordon Villas, William West, builder, his wife and servant
1 Gordon Villas, Thomas Barralet, architect & usrveyor, his wife, 3 children and parents-in-law.
