South Twerton Junior School, at the junction of Claude/Lymore/Coronation Avenues, was originally Ascension School and opened in 1893 but it was not until 1897 that Claude Avenue itself appears in local street directories. Houses on the road built that year were numbered 1 through 34 and 61 - 62, plus Claude House itself (the home of butter merchant William H Chapman). The builders, George & John Hallett, lived at 61 & 62.
In 1902, the list of occupations of homeowners on the road make for an interesting snapshot into life in Oldfield Park - fourteen houses were occupied by GWR workers and there were twelve owners in the building industry (including five masons & three carpenters). Other professions included shoemakers, cabinet makers, foundrymen and clerks.
This property is first recorded as occupied in 1900 by William S Francis (painter). Mr Francis is recorded in residence until 1932 with his widow continuing to occupy the property thereafter.
