According to the 1861 census, Maria Wycherley (noted as Witcherley by enumerator) lived and worked here as a housemaid. The location was that of a confectioner and is one of the few buildings to have survived the redevelopment ravage of the 20th century. A side lane close by is still called Sweeting street, next door was the Bank of England. Several of her fellow workers’ surnames was Davies; a name that crops up regularly in our records!
