HISTORY: deeds of 30/31.12.1819 in the Knightshayes Estate
Office, Tiverton, relate to the sale by Matthew Blasdale of
Tiverton, frame smith, of part of the ground on which these
houses stand, `whereon the said Matthew Blasdale hath lately
erected and built a new messuage or dwellinghouse'. Deeds of
22/23.4.1822 relate to another house in the terrace `lately
built' by Isaac Warner of Tiverton, frame smith. John
Heathcoat, the lace manufacturer, was named as trustee in both
deeds and it seems reasonable to assume the 2 men were his
employees.
Heathcoat bought Warner's house in 1822 and by 1844 his estate
atlas (in the estate office) shows him owning the whole
terrace. The deeds describe the houses as having 28 foot
frontages, equivalent to a pair of the existing houses, but it
seems unlikely that Heathcoat rebuilt the whole terrace; it
was only 25 years old by 1844 and lacks the cast-iron window
sills that are a mark of Heathcoat's building elsewhere in the
town.
