History of 16 Hills Road

Pevsner notes (Cambridgeshire p. 327): the retained facade of Cintra House, originally added c 1860-5 to an early C19 four-storey terrace. The design is reportedly by John Edlin, in a very coarse eclectic style, with a row of roundels and heads sticking out of them.

Elizabeth Dias Santos left £300 in her will towards the Catholic school fund and £200 for the poor fund at St Andrew’s.  She also bought the property adjoining the chapel to the west with the intention of handing it over to the church once the purchase money was paid.
