These were the first of several shops and dwellings built by Daniel Connor as part of the initial commercial development in Toodyay. One of the shop/dwellings was rented and later owned by Charles Ellery. The existing antique shop was a butcher's shop for many years. In 1901 C.G. Ellery was a member of the inaugural Newcastle Board of Health and in 1906 was a member of the Newcastle Vigilance Group which was formed to promote improvements for Toodyay.
