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.

 

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.
