Item 1 of 9John BaxterArchitectC1800 Colvin states that it was John Baxter the builder who died in 1837 who designed and built these houses. However we know that the more important Baxter family owned land at Greenside Well around the corner so it seems very likely that they were initially responsible for the houses - and perhaps completed by the other John Baxter?
