The oldest part of this West Tinmouth Rd house dates from ca. 1776 .and was built by Francis Matteson (1743-1812) and his wife Mary Priest (1757-1812).  That portion was a separate house that was moved and attached to the back of the present house. 

The main portion of the house is not dated.  A school report written in 1992 that can be found in the Documents collection indicates it was originally built by the Ewing family and then bought by Joseph Warren Potter (1801 - 1849) and his wife Lucy Fisk (1800 - 1879).  The Potters and Mattesons were amongst the early settlers of Clarendon.
