One of a group of 4 similar houses built on a 3 life lease system.
'Under such leases a piece of waste ground could be obtained at a nominal rent, and
on it the lessee would proceed to erect a house with the understanding that at the
death of the longest lived of three selected persons, the ground, together with all
the buildings, and improvements should revert to the original owner. Leases could
sometimes be renewed on payment of a fine'. Source CORNISH HOMES AND CUSTOMS by
