Crafting The Past

The 1795 Water Rates, helps position some of the businesses in the trade directory in their relevant buildings.

The records run the opposite way around from the St Helen’s Square side round to the Mansion House. This was initially confusing until we were able to pinpoint names we’d previously confirmed in buildings.
We will now run these alongside the earlier viewed deed records, so we may be able to get a fuller picture of the street. We don’t know however whether the bills are for landlords, tenants and in buildings of multiple use on several floors they are all billed separately
