Perhaps the Parish Council may be of assistance:

Thanks at least I know now where they are. All I need now is to find an old pic of church and street hoping they are on them.
Thanks again Gaynori

The almhouses, according to this, were attached to the back of St Mary's Chapel.

That's interesting John was a rope maker neither a carpenter or seafarer. Must have needed to fill up spaces.
