HISTORICAL NOTE: King Street was developed on the S side from 1663. Like the Llandoger Trow (qv), the houses form an early type of terrace retaining original plan forms. The rear back block is an important survival, with parallels in other SW towns such as Barnstaple and Totnes. (Gomme A, Jenner M and Little B: Bristol, An Architectural History: Bristol: 1979-: 83).
