This house near the former main entrance to the Blake Estate from Washington Street was the last one built on Weybridge Road. The architect, Harry Ramsey, also designed four other houses in Blake Park, two on Blake Road and one each on Stanton and Somerset.

7 Weybridge Road was the home initially of William and Margaret Clark and Margaret's mother and brother Margaret M. and John H. Ryan. William Clark (born c1904 in Illinois) owned a moving company. By 1944, when he was no longer listed at this address (having died or otherwise moved on), his wife Margaret (1907-1994?) was the owner of the company.

Margaret Mary Ryan (born c1876) was the daughter of Irish immigrants. Her son John Henry Ryan (1898-1988) was a clerk at the Holtzer Cabot Electric Company. Members of the family were listed at this address from 1935 until the early 1970s.
