Rows 66 - 71


Row 66 (Stamp Office Row) linked Howard and King streets and was at various times also known as Girling's Row, Dendy's Row and Savings Bank Row. One of its names is derived from an amateur artist named Edmund Girling who was born here in the late 18th century. CJ Palmer adds the name Excise Row, derived from the fact that the house at the row's north-western corner was for many years occupied by the officers of the excise. In 1919, a fire destroyed an adjacent shop and the row was subsequently incorporated into the rebuilt shop. The entrance at its western end, just north of the junction with Regent Street, is still in place.

Row 67 (Nicholas Cutting's Row aka Mayor Ramey's Row and Star Tavern Row) ran from Howard Street to Hall Quay. Nicholas Cutting was a bailiff in 1619, John Ramey a mayor in 1760 and 1773. The Star Tavern was a public house located at the western end. The row was demolished in 1934 and a telephone exchange built on the site.

Row 68 (Thomas Lucas' Row aka Bream's Row) linked Howard Street and Hall Quay. One of the names of this row is derived from Thomas Lucas who was a bailiff in 1658 and lived in a house at the western end of the row, which ceased to exist in 1813 when Regent Street was built over it.

The construction of Regent Street was decided by the Paving Commissioners, appointed by an act of parliament in 1809 which authorised the construction of one or more streets extending from the Quay but not further than Row 67 in order to prevent any injury to the traffic through Old Broad Row and Market Row, and as a further protection to the owners of property in said rows no shop or public house was to be permitted. Regent Streets follows the characteristic curve which can even today be observed, along which many of the rows had been built. It was formally opened on 29 September 1813 by Jacob Preson, the then newly elected mayor.

Row 69 (Rev Welham's Row) links King Street and Theatre Plain and is named after Reverend John Welham, a minister of St George's Chapel (now St George's Theatre) and headmaster of the Grammar School.

Row 70 (Foreman the Baker's Row) once ran from King Street to Howard Street but has since been incorporated in its entirety into the Victoria Arcade which it immediately adjoins and within which its western entrance can now be found. This row, which at various times was also known as Craske the Baker's Row and Male the Chemist's Row, is still mainly intact.

Row 71 (Cubitt the Painter's Row aka Symond's Row) linked Howard Street and Hall Plain. In the 19th century Robert Cubbitt, a plumber and glazier, lived at the south-western corner of the row. Nathaniel Symonds was a merchant who lived at the north-western corner. Apart from the Howard Street (eastern) end, where the end house appears to have been demolished, the row would seem to be mainly intact. The building at number 2 is a mid-17th century house with an attached warehouse which had been used as a printing works in the 19th and 20th centuries.
