This house was designed by Percival Hill Mitchelson
in 1904 for Stanley Archibald Markham Pritchard
who joined the Cape Mounted Rifles in 1892 and was
transferred to the Basutoland Mounted Police in
1898. He came to Johannesburg in 1901 to work
in what was then called the Native Affairs
Department. In the First World War Colonel
Pritchard commanded the SA Native
Labour Corps in France.
