Mr. William Burton Astwood built this house in the 1870, yet he never lived in it himself. Currently it is occupied by his grandson, Mr.XXXX Crofton, who is the oldest citizen at the age of 91. Mr. Crofton has lived there all his married life. The name Astwood, like Coverley, Hawkins and Grant, is an old Grand Turk family name of a one-time salt merchant and proprietor. Mr. Astwood was the foremost importer and seller of liquor of his day. This property was acquired by Mr. Crofton's father who was the local money-lender of the day. From here he sold various hardware items such as paint, nails, iron rods and even boats.
