Both erven were part of Lot ‘O’ which was registered to the ST Municipality on 29th December 1848 and sold on 13/08/1858. The separate erven have since always been sold together as the villa occupies one erf and the garden the other. Both passed through the hands of C.P.A. Albertyn and then to John B.J.Knox The Amlay family ‘Villa Marina’ and the garden erf in 1935. The family was issued with a letter from the Group Area’s Development Board in 1967 advising them that the house was to be taken over. The family slowly moved to other areas. It was taken over by Community Development Board in 1975 & converted to SA Navy offices. Patty & Dickie Davidson moved back to Amlay House in September 1995.
