Can someone tell me if this cottage is still in existence, or if not, at least where it was? It is said to have been the home of artist Theophilus Smith in 1871.

The census for 1871 shows Shirle Hill Cottage, Cherry Tree Road - next to Prospect House, Cherry Tree Lane - though I can't find the junction between Road and Lane on any maps

Cherry Tree Lane is now Union Road. Problem being that the area changed a lot in 1860s after John Brown moved out of Shirle Hill. Some of the estate was broken up into smaller portions and built on. Newspaper article re sale of Shirle Hill estate does mention cottages but not a specific Shirle Hill Cottage.
