HISTORICAL NOTE: the Bayshill estate was developed by a joint stock company which purchased land from the Skillicorne family in 1837. By 1843 Henry Davies, in his Guide to Cheltenham, described 'a number of detached villas .. several of which are occupied by resident families of affluence and station, and others are in an unfinished state.' By c1845 the company was bankrupt and Onley bought much Bayshill property. Little considers this to be one of a `superb group (of villas) that make Bayshill Road one of the great roads for architecture in all England'.
