Yew Tree Terrace Sale notice, 1900
  The cottage nearest Gold Street (called 47 Gold Street) is not shown on the Ordnance Survey map of 1900.  However, it appears to have been occupied at the time of the 1901 census, as shown by list of people identified with the building (see People tab).

This advertisement indicates that 47 Gold Street was at an advanced stage of construction when Yew Tree cottages were sold in July 1900.

The memorandum of sale signed on the day of the sale indicates that Yew Tree cottages were purchased by Frederick Tomkins for �405.  The seller was The Wolverton (Bucks) Permanent Benefit Building Society, suggesting that the previous owner may have been in difficulty funding completion of construction.
