Full description

Devon County Council, 1838-1848, Tithe Mosaic, approximately 1838-1848 (Cartographic). SDV349431.

The Tithe Map depiction shows a rectangular building at the rear of the houses on the street frontage here, joined at the south-eastern end to MDV114210. Part of the plot numbered 96; 'Cottages and garden' on the apportionment.

Ordnance Survey, 1880-1899, First Edition Ordnance 25 inch map (Cartographic). SDV336179.

By the late 19th century, the property had been extended at the north-western end to join up to the house fronting onto the street (MDV114208). This north-western end is shown as a separate property from the rest of the range of buildings at the rear.

Ordnance Survey, 1904 - 1906, Second Edition Ordnance Survey 25 inch Map (Cartographic). SDV325644.

The early 20th century historic map looks to show all the subdivisions within the buildings that exist into modern times.

Unknown, 1975, Conveyance document relating to No. 4 Gregory's Court (Un-published). SDV361464.

Plan of the nine gardens and gardens and sheds at Gregory's Forge/Court included with conveyance for No. 4. In 1975 the property was split up (having previously been owned by the same family).

Ordnance Survey, 2016, MasterMap (Cartographic). SDV359352.

Modern map shows the current adjoining properties: 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 Gregory's Court.

Gillham, S., 2018, Gregory's Forge/Court properties, Chagford (Personal Comment). SDV361465.

Additional information about layout of the gardens and sheds at the rear of Gregory's Court based on a conveyance document from 1975 when the property was split up and sold.
Cottages Nos. 3 and 4 appear to be older than Nos. 5-7 and may have originally been one rectangular building as No. 4 has a large fireplace that No. 3 lacks. A building surveyor stated that No. 4 has 17th century origins; based on the old roof frame and evidence of thatch noted. This is under the higher 19th century roof added to encompass the extensions to the front.
Until recently No. 3 Gregory's Court retained access to a shed at the rear for car parking.
