In early 1883, the land bordered by The Esplanade, Wellington, Dendy and New Streets was subdivided. This created an estate of 84 allotments with frontages to these streets as well as to Sussex and Manor Streets.1 There were seven blocks on the west side of Manor Street, designated as Lots 10 to 16. By 1891, a six room timber house, valued at £70, had been erected on Lot 12. It was owned and occupied by Herbert Hayball, an accountant, who was still living there in 1905.2 He was a doubtless a descendant of Robert Hayball, a Brighton pioneer who arrived in 1843 and established a timber yard in New Street which soon grew to become one of the most prominent and successful businesses in the area.3 By 1910, Herbert Hayball's house in Manor Street had been acquired, or more likely repossessed, by the Northern Assurance Company. At that time, the house was identified as Normanby. By 1917, Louisa Davey, a widow, was owner and occupant of the house, then known as No. 11 Manor Street.4
The house at 11 Manor Street is a detached, asymmetrically planned, single-storey Italianate style villa with a hipped slate roof with bracketed eaves. The house has a return verandah supported on cast iron columns, and abuts an unusual elaborate rendered entrance porch on the street elevation. The classically composed porch has a semi-circular arched opening with rendered mouldings and keystone, and is surmounted by a segmented arched and scrolled pedimented parapet. The pediment contains a shield in low relief. A canted bay projects on the north elevation. Eaves have coupled timber brackets, and the rendered chimney stacks have moulded cappings. The rendered brick and steel palisade fence is a relatively recent addition, and a pair of windows to the south of the porch is a later alteration.

Normanby, at 11 Manor Street, Brighton, is of aesthetic significance. The house, substantially intact, is distinctive example of the nineteenth Italianate style, distinguished by its unusual ornate entrance porch.
