8 Eastern Terrace, Brighton

In 1881 an Ellen Robertson, born in Liverpool, was working as a housemaid at 8 Eastern Terrace, Brighton. (RG 11/1077)

EASTERN TERRACE: This imposing terrace has nine large, four-storey, listed houses of about 1827-8, some of the finest in the town. Nos.1-2 and 9 have wide bow fronts, while no.8 has a concave facade. Most have Doric porches, and nos.5-7 have unstuccoed first floors faced in yellow brick. No.1 was occupied from 1836 until 1858 by the first Lord Sudeley, and then by Sir Albert Sassoon in 1876-96; the Bombay Bar in St George's Road (q.v.) behind the house was constructed as his private mausoleum. The house became the Court Royal Hotel in 1914, and was converted into Court Royal Mansions in the early 1950s. No.2 was the home of the famous journalist George Augustus Sala in the 1890s, while no.9 was occupied for some time by King Manoel II of Portugal during his exile; it later became the Royal Sussex Hotel and then part of the MunicipalTrainingCollege until the 1970s. {44,46,83}
