No 112 has heavy chamfered beams, 2 with run-out stops. The house was owned in the C16 by the Humphrey family, passed to the Tedbury family and was apparently rebuilt 1632 by W.Tedbury, who was charged with encroaching on the lord’s waste and over the street. W.Bollen was the builder. The case may refer only to extensions to a C16 house. The house was know as Tedburys. Nos 90-112 form a fine C17 to C18 group, Nos 94-112 known as the ‘Flemish weavers houses’. (H.Brakspear Corsham n.d. 25; reprint Wilts. Arch Mag. 43, 511-39.)
