The building has been traced back as far as 1803 when it was occupied by carpenters and builders. In the 1851 Census Returns it was occupied by Richard Mowle, a Cinque Port pilot and his family, who remained there until 1863. It was then occupied by an upholsterer and remained in this use until the 1920s. In 1927 it became a general stores called The Middle Street Stores. The building is shown on the first edition Ordnance survey map of 1872. In the later C20 the building was adapted to become entirely residential and the C19 shopfront was removed.
