  Text: Nos. 21 and 22. This site is now occupied by the chapel of the Convent of the Assumption, which is separately described below with the rest of the convent buildings.

The two houses which previously stood here were both erected c. 1685–6 under leases granted by Thomas Young to a James Debnam ‎(or Debenham)‎, about whom nothing is known. At No. 21 the construction work had evidently been completed at the expenseof Thomas Sutton, to whom Young sold the freehold of both houses in 1687 ‎(ref. 206)‎ ‎(see page 8)‎. Neither house appears to have been inhabited until about 1695. ‎(ref. 18)‎ At No. 22 the first occupant was Sutton himself, until 1705, when he soldboth houses for £630 to Sir Hele Hook, who had recently purchased the adjoining No. 23 for his own residence. ‎(ref. 207)‎ The first occupant of No. 21 was Mrs. Worthington, probably Elizabeth Worthington, laundress of Queen's Court, and perhapsthe widow of James Worthington, a page of the back stairs. ‎(ref. 208)‎

As built Nos. 21 and 22 are known to have been only two storeys high with basements and garrets. When valued for insurance in 1744, they each had six wainscotted rooms and one or more marble chimneypieces. ‎(ref. 209)‎

After the death of Sir Hele Hook in 1712 the freehold descended to his nephew Thomas Grove of Ferne, Donhead St. Andrews, in Wiltshire, and then to the latter's son, who sold No. 21 in 1793 and No. 22 in 1805. ‎(ref. 210)‎ The houses remained inseparate ownership until 1869–70, when they were bought by the Convent of the Assumption, which was already established at No. 23 and also owned No. 20. ‎(ref. 211)‎ Construction of the chapel began in 1870, but the southern end was built first inthe back gardens of Nos. 21 and 22; the houses themselves were demolished in 1874.

Other occupants included: No. 21. Alfred Weigell, miniature painter, 1867–9: No. 22. Letitia, Dowager Countess of Radnor, widow of 1st Earl, 1706 until her death here in 1714; Benjamin Drake, esquire, former Groom of the Wardrobe to William III,1715–c. 1724 ‎(he was previously at No. 9)‎; John Henry Walsh, writer and surgeon, editor of The Field, 1860–7.
