Great finds Shaun.  :)

You may wish to contact this group:

Though it is probably unlikely they will have anything about this specific house unless it is architecturally significant or associated with someone important.

I feel there should be some old town plans to add to the story, but a quick look hasn't found anything yet. Maybe the civic society can help you with that too?

Good luck. It's a lovely house (if it is yours I am very jealous)  ;D

Here's an 1886 map. http://maps.nls.uk/view/121153754#zoom=7&lat=2074&lon=1206&layers=BT

Number 50 is the house adjoining the Guildhall near the "I" in Mill Street. Next but one above is the Blue Boar, above that is the now-defunct Hop Pole.
