Bryan House - The earliest available record, the Frenchman's Map of 1782 points to a rectangular house facing the Duke of Gloucester Street on the north east corner of the lot & a smaller house directly behind it & at some distance from it.

The first known owner of the lot & buildings was William Bryan, husband of Frances & father of Julian Bryan.
