Overview | Historical info | Public transport | Map

The building can be traced back to 1437, and was built as a private house close to the church. St John's chapel was rebuilt in 1495 with a small bell tower, which may explain the earlier name.

Benjamin Garnham, a common carrier, lived at 127 in 1812 and may help to explain the renaming.

No further references have been found after 1756, when it was owned by Webster Adams, but may have become part of George.

The building was demolished in 1960.
