Portion of Elizabeth House, 86-92 Wellington Parade, may date back to 1855 when Crawford Brothers erected a ten room brick home with outhouses on this site for J D Pinnock, noted public servant, politician and banker. Additions were made in 1866 and Pinnock occupied the home until his death in 1875. In 1888 it was owned by K E Brodribb, a soliciter who undertook extensive additions to the House.Architect:
