Structural evidence, including the integral lean-to indicates that the house at 115 High Street in Ipswich was built about 1725. It displays late 1st period and Georgian architectural elements. The antiques business that operates from this house features period pieces.
This lot was first owned by Daniel Bosworth, a cowherd. His widow, Abigail, sold the dwelling in 1702 to William Baker (16:61). Baker probably built the present dwelling. The house has been extensively restored, and the handsome pilastered chimney and Conn. River Valley – type doorframe with its broken scroll pediment were added.
In the early – mid 18th century a guild of hatters all lived on High Street in Ipswich, including Samuel Baker and Richard Sutton.
