(South Side)
No 130
SP 5106 SW 8/344 12.1.54.
House and shops. RCHM. 75. C15-C16. The front part of the house is 2-storeyed
roughcast timber-framing with 2 gables and cellars; the upper part, set back
from the street, is of 3-storeyed timber-framing with 2 gabled attic dormers
and a modern tile roof. The building at the back was heightened early in
C17. The windows and the back upper part has casement windows. The South
side of the front part, on a passage way on the East, was rebuilt in brick
(? circa 1929). At the North end of the passage way is an ancient wood doorframe
with moulded jambs and 4-centred head. Interior. RCHM page 165b. Includes
moulded ceiling beams and a (? reset) C16 fireplace; C16 and circa 1600 panelling
and a queen-post roof. History. Owned circa 1600 by Alderman William Boswell,
mercer, who died in 1638 and was succeeded by Dr William Boswell DCL. The
latter sold in 1689 to Thomas Reeve, tobacco pipe maker, who left it to the
City in 1697, for the benefit of poor widows. It was occupied by the Carter
family, brush makers and fishmongers from circa 1797 to circa 1920. It
was condemned in 1929, but the front was preserved and a new building made
at the back; the latter, however, was damaged by fire within a few months.
