The three-storey Court House in Spon Street was replaced only recently with a modern two-storey outhouse which bears no resemblance to the original.
I assume the courthouse wasn't a court. It looks too big for a single family so I guess they rented a room or 2.
The courts became a feature of Coventry in the 19th century. As the population expanded the city was unable to expand outwards and so a lot of infilling took place. Basically the courtyards and gardens behind the original rows of houses were filled in with multiiple occupancy "courts" and small factories/workshops. You can find some useful information on the Spon End thread. Try typing courts into the search box top left.
