I've been inspired/triggered by the development plans for St. Ann's and have done a little playing around with maps to see how the site developed. This is an overlay of the site in 1619, 1873 and 1955. It's a bit confusing all together, I'll put the build-up in the comments. The lodge building does appear to have been in the roughly same place (although obviously not the same building) since 1619.
More on St John's Lodge in the comments on this thread from 2011.
Thanks for adding the link Hugh, I couldn't find it while I was posting. The thread is massively used (and referenced) in the archaeological survey for the planning application for new housing - along with your Wikipedia info!
