16 Jesus Lane, Kimbold’s tenement, Little Trinity
History of 16 Jesus Lane
A B Gray in Cambridge Revisited notes that the site was called Kimbold’s tenement in the reign of Elizabeth I.
Accord to the 1959 Royal Commission, the principal block was built c. 1725 and the kitchen range on the E. is probably of the same age. ‘Little Trinity’ is an outstanding small 18th-century house containing fittings of the same period. The Royal Commission report contains a lengthy description.

A B Gray writes: Here in mid-Victorian times, lived that well known “coach”, Charlie Crosse, whose charming and hospitable wife lavishly entertained her husband’s pupils, made Little Trinity tea parties famous, and held quite a saloon for the undergraduates of the time.
