Posted March 23, 1906

(shortly after Redcliffe Salaman moved into the house and possibly sent to notify new address)

Homestall is situated at The Mount, on the London Road to the west of Barley village, close to the Chequers Inn. The following are references I have found to the house:

Possible earlier references.   [A Josiah Johnson, Registrar & Corn Inspector & Keeper of Tolls, Royston, is listed in the 1861 census as living  on Barkway Road - immediately before Chequers Corner. Could he have been living at Homestall ?? He is listed in the 1851 directory, but not in 1866. In the 1851 census he is listed as the last house in the High Street, which could be consistent with the Homestall.]
