According to the Survey of London, this part of Fulham Road traverses what was formerly an old settlement called Little Chelsea, with the first known references dating back to the early 17th century. From quite an early time, the area seems to have had the mixed character it retained into the early 19th century, with sizeable houses in private occupation by people of note, mingled with terraced cottages. This area of Little Chelsea exemplified how the mixed social character of a group of houses built along one of the highways out of London did not necessarily presage rapid decline. In the early 1800's, houses were occupied by wealthy retired tradesmen and city merchants, with poplars blowing in their front gardens, and the orchards and nursery grounds of south west Brompton behind them, Little Chelsea continued as a description of this area into the 1850's, but it seemed to have discontinued when land under the ownership of the Gunter family designed the surrounding streets during the 1850's and 1860's, comprising The Boltons, Gilston Road, Tregunter Road et al.View payable Stamp Duty for this property
