The Doctor: Fascinating history, Downing Street. 1730, it was occupied by a Mr. Chicken. He was a nice man.
Mr Chicken was in fact the last private resident of Downing's terrace. Little is known about him except that he moved out in the early 1730s. The remainder of the property that would one day be incorporated into 10 Downing Street was owned by Count Bothmar, who died in 1732. The two properties were then joined and renovated into the building as it exists today.
