London, who purchased and developed the land which became Vale Square
(from August 1839). He first lived at the pre-existing No. 5 Vale
Square (No. 5 Victoria Place), and moved into No. 13 (Royal Villa) in Summer
1840, by which time No. 51 (not now listable) and 52 (part of Vale House)
had been built. Vale Square was to be a square with 3 rows of 4 storey
houses and central garden, all to be built by William Saxby, the plan
amended 1846 to allow Saxby to build Christ Church (by G.G. Scott) on
the western side of the Vale. Eleven houses were built 1841-46, a
further 5 by March 1850, completing the development. (See Busson,
