Good map Steve. So the drain that I called the Puny that runs through
frigos is not the Puny but the continuation of the Peirpoint drain or the Middleton stop drain, cant say which as it joins both. :?
I do not want thanks for any research I am able to help out with. I just love doing it.

At last

Postby teddybear1959 » 19 Aug 2007, 17:09

I have, at last, copied the map that shows one of the other Begley's Yards.

As you will see, it is next to Daisley's Buildings on Providence Street.

It gets more and more interesting the more you look!

Just wondering if anyone can throw any light on following
subject :? On Old Gits map of 1886 there is a Brooks Court
which might have possibly led onto Spencers Square :?

I have just found a photo taken a few months ago of a notice
on the wall of what was/is Brooks Court. Freebridge appear to be
calling this Spencers Court. Does anybody know if Brooks Court was
renamed Spencers Court?

SPENCER COURT

Postby roger » 19 Aug 2007, 22:36

WHERE DID THEY GET SPENCER COURT FROM? ONLY SPENCER SQUARE IS ON THE MAP THE ONLY ENTRANCE TO THAT WAS FROM CHECKER STREET BETWEEN NO 19 & 21. ROGER I BEGIN TO WONDER HOW MANY OF THESE MAPS ARE ACCURATE.ROGER.

Spencer's Square

Postby teddybear1959 » 19 Aug 2007, 22:39

This was entered via Checker Street, not through Brook's Court.

The problem is that the council don't actually worry if they get it right or not do they?

Mind you, if Begley's Yard is anything to go by, it is a hard job to know what some of the places are/were called!!!

No 'Mr Dan Coates' in my uncles deeds rog, guess he didn't get that one. My uncle also thought it was the Puny at the end of his garden even though it states the Esk and Middleton stop drain in his deeds. :roll:

Good map showing the location of Begley's third yard teddy.

Seems they liked changing names for places on a whim, deeds show nothing of Begley's buildings, but a different variation on the theme, it was called Begley's Row. No mention I can see of Guanock field.

Begley's Row

From the oldest Abstract of Title.

part of next page in same doc.

Something a bit odd here, the 1853 report at the start of this topic says 18 houses. If this is the same row of houses then another dwelling must have been added as shown in the 1886 map. William street now has 20 houses, the left hand triangular building in the row now being a house (or two).

Solved

As the report in 1852/3 says that the houses were owned by Mr Platten and the deed belonging to OG's Uncle says the same thing in the abstract of title, there we have it! Even previously owned by one Francis Begley.

Begley's Buildings, Begley's Row, Esk Terrace, William Street, all one and the same.

Unless you know different!

Yes, it seems Mr Begley was quite the property developer in his time. 8)
