Marsuma House is in the hamlet of Havannah, so named after the battle of Cuba in 1762 when the British defeated the Spanish and took over the island at the end of the Seven Year's War.

The street was built in 1826 for mill workers. At one stage there were upwards of 92 cottages; now only 9. Marsuma House was formerly two workers cottages.

In the 1890s Havannah Mills were taken over by Andiamo and Company who employed 400 workers to produce "Havannah" cigars. Although the tobacco used was actually Indian and not the same as their famous Cuban namesake. The cigars were exported to America.

A misrepresentation court case ruled that the packaging was misleading and should have a country of manufacture. The cigars were renamed as Marsuma Cigars.

Andiano moved out into the centre of Congleton in 1906. The village declined and became known as the "deserted village" attracting tourists as shown by the adjacent photograph

The houses were refurbished in 1976 into what you see today.
