Prior to the construction of the majority of the Oldfield Park suburb, Brougham Hayes was a cul de sac ending in the grounds of Crandale Nursery (next to the Somerset Certified Industrial Home for Boys - now Hayesfield Lower School). The terrace was originally divided into two addresses - Twerton Hayes Buildings (south end) and Brougham Hayes Buildings (north end). Lorne Road (then called Lorne Terrace) ran behind with its own entrance onto the Lower Bristol Road, with Brougham Hayes Cottages and Brougham Hayes Terrace at the northern end of that street.
The buildings on Brougham Hayes were first occupied in the early 1830s. This property was originally No25 Twerton Hayes Buildings. By the time the majority of Oldfield Park was constructed (1895), the residents here were;
41 - William Marshall (bootmaker)
42 - Job Norris (cabinet maker)
43 - George Coles (sawyer)
44 - Mrs Caroline Parsons
45 - Richard Hamilton
46 - William Garrod (cab proprietor)
