Families and businesses associated with the property

Milliner John Berteau was in business at 8 Broad Street in the 1830s and '40s, followed by his widow Jane, also a milliner, in the '50s and '60s. John was born in 1791, the son of Jean Berteau and Jeanne Grellier, and descended from a St Lawrence family.

In the 1850s and '60s watchmaker and dentist Sebastien de la Lande (1806- ) was also in business at No 8, followed by his son Gustave Edouard (1839- ) in the '70s. In 1881 the census showed ship's carpenter William Park (1849- ) living there with his wife Harriet (1857- ), a tobacconist.

From 1886 the premises were part of Beghin's footwear retailers, and remained so until the business closed in 2019.
