Full Description

No. 41, together with Nos. 43, 45, 49 and 51 (234–237), all built by 1808, was part of the development of the garden of No. 90 Gillygate by Mary Sickling. Nos. 41, 43 and 45 were sold shortly after her marriage to Edward Cowper which took place in 1811 or 1812, but Nos. 49 and 51 and the piece of ground between them and No. 45 were not sold until 1828 after she and her husband had both died. No. 41 was sold in 1812 to Joseph Terry, linendraper, and inherited c. 1830 by his son Thomas who had already bought the site of No. 47 in 1829 (Deeds). It was of three storeys and had a symmetrical front elevation. The central doorway was similar to that of No. 47 of c. 1830; the windows had segmental heads. Demolished.
