This house was home to Mrs Hilda Parrish (nee Gibson) for all except the last few months of her life. On her marriage to John Parrish, her parents passed the house to her. Originally thatched, the house was later roofed with corrugated iron, then finally with tiles, all a common area practice. In 2005 the out buildings behind the house were demolished for development.
