The first record of these houses come from an abstract of title (see links on People tab) which begins in 1726 when William Ancell, a lace buyer is recorded as selling to Robert West, a baker.  The property continued in the West family until 1800 when it was purchased by Moses Agar whose sister Mary was married to Harry West who then sold it but seems to have remained as a tenant.  Moses Agar's father, also called Moses Agar was vicar from 1749 to 1783.  Moses Agar the younger was a merchant living in London.  He seems to have got into financial difficulty and lost control of the property around 1807, but regained control in 1812.  At the time of a survey in 1779, and probably throughout this period the property was comprised of two tenements.

By 1818 William Nichols is recorded as owner in a survey of that date.

In censuses from 1851 to 1881 William Warwick is recorded as a baker living in the High Street, and it is likely he occupied one on these tenements.

By the time of the 1901 census, the Working Mens Club steward is recorded living here.
