Introduction

Of the block of 8 properties, the westmost two, 27 and 31, were built first, by Thomas Just, as early as 1820. The rest were built by Robert Just: the next two from the west, 25 and 33, were built by 1840; and the eastmost four, 23, 29, 21 and 19, were built last. The front wall of 19 is dated 1850.

If not listed separately in the Valuation Rolls, this house is included with the shop.

 

Commentary

Robert Just owned 5 properties at The Terrace and 8 at Woodend. His listings in the Valuation Rolls are frequently mixed up and untangling them has proved a challenge. People did move between the properties, which adds to the difficulties. Some directory entries remain unanswered.
