History of 1 Madras Road

Marshall Cottages, Madras Road

Nos 1 & 3: in June 1892 an indenture was drawn up between Albert Edward Mason and Frederick Stephen Cottage. It can be assumed that this entailed the passing of the undeveloped plot from the former to the latter, as in September 1893 J. J. Cottage (of Brandon Hall, Norfolk) submitted an application to the Borough for approval to erect two “private dwelling houses”. Mr Cottage’s agent was R. Reynolds Rowe of Park House, Parkside.
