Late C18 vernacular cottage. An inscribed stone over the doorway bears the initials and date: J M P 1777. The Census Returns of 1841 records three separate dwellings, although it cannot be established which record applies to which cottage along the range. One was occupied by Elizabeth Ellis and her 2 teenage daughters, one cottage housed John Williams, miner, his wife, 4 children and one Elizabeth Jones (probably his wife's mother); the third cottage was the home to John Rowlands, weaver, his wife and 2 sons. Between the three cottages there was a total of just under 2 acres(0.809 hectares) of land, the range recorded as being owned, in the Tithe Schedule of 1848, by The Most Noble, The Marquis of Anglesey.
