Families and businesses associated with the property
For several years in the 1870s and '80s there was a bank at 11 Broad Street. This was the Commercial Banking Company. It was preceded in 1852 by merchant Henry Bragg, about whom nothing else is known. There were several tenements behind the Broad Street frontage, but the 1861 and 1871 census returns do not shown anyone obviously trading from the premises.
In the 1890s Misses Whetton are listed in almanac street directories, followed by W Moyse and S Picot in the 1910s, '20s and '30s, before the property was entirely refurbished for the Jersey Electricity Company to move there in January 1939. They have moved their retail operation to Queen's Road and 11 Broad Street, having been a toy shop for several years, is home to Pound Magic.
