HISTORICAL NOTE: the Bayshill Estate was developed by a joint
stock company which purchased land from the Skillicorne family
in 1837. By 1843, Henry Davies described, 'a number of
detached villas .. several of which are occupied by resident
families of affluence and station, and others are in an
unfinished state'. The company was bankrupt by c1845 when
architect Samuel Onley bought much Bayshill property, and so
Pevsner suggests that other houses in Bayshill Road were built
to his designs.
Little, one of a 'superb group (of villas) that make Bayshill
Road one of the great roads for architecture in all England'.
