Heaven was born in Bristol England on February 9, 1835. His wife Jane Stephens was born in Bristol, England on November 5, 1839. They came with their children; Herbert G., Claude, Lillian, Cecil, Muriel and Cam. The house was/is 10-rooms, 1 1/2 storey, stone.

After 1967, the Lawrences owned the house and about 7 acres after that until about 1996.
