HISTORICAL NOTE: formerly the rectory to St Michael's Church (qv), c1470, which was largely rebuilt 1775 by Thomas Paty, who may have introduced the ogee fenestration to the rectory. Fine late C16 panelling was removed to the Red Lodge (qv), and is now in the ground floor Oak Room there. A house on the site is marked on Millerd's Map of Bristol, 1673.
