A little history...
It was April 1845 when William Bevan opened a tailoring business in the house at 193 Prince Street. At that time it was a cottage of one story and a half. He had a large circle of friends, was a beadle (a minor church official) and a choir member of Old St. Paul's Anglican Church, the oldest Protestant Church on the Island. William married Hannah Vesey in 1846. He died at the age of fifty-seven of bronchitis and left the house at 193 Prince Street to her - until her death or until she re-married (a common non-malicious procedure in Victorian times). Hannah did in fact re-marry in 1887 and the house was put up at public auction. Willam's son Job continued to operate the tailoring business at Hillsboro Street, just a few blocks away.
