There are various reports of the Hive leaving Dublin 24 Aug 1835. In addition to 250 male prisoners the passengers included " ... twenty-nine rank and file of the 28th, 8 women and 11 children ..."

Manuden and Berden History Society -
Might be worth contacting. "Horner's Yard, Manuden" is mentioned as late as 1959/60 in the newspapers.
The 1939 register has "Nos 1-8 Horner's Yard". One Census lists 7 properties at "Horner's Yard". On Streetview, from the road you can view St Mary's Church to the right and to the left a row of houses that runs parallel to the Church - with a graveyard in between. These are the backs of the houses (the fronts cannot be viewed). There appear to be about 8 properties and I did wonder if this was "Horner's Yard". On the 1923 map posted previously this block appears immediately to the left of the "P.O.".

"ALMSHOUSE TRUST PROPERTY - On Wednesday the Almshouse Trust Property in Homer's Yard was visited ..."
Might be worth contacting Manuden Almshouse Trust Charity?

First, a very warm welcome to Rootschat.
Blyth News, 15 Oct 1923
Letters were read from Seaton Delaval Coal Co Ltd and the Cowpen Coal Co Ltd stating that they could not agree to any alterations in street names. The Bebside Coal Co Ltd suggested the following changes:-
Office Road, Bebside to Mansel Terrace; Station Row, Bebside to to Lonsdale Terrace; West Row, Bebside to Errington Street; Brick Road, Bebside to Purvis Street.
It was recommended that the names proposed by the Bebside Coal Co Ltd be approved and adopted, and that the borough Engineer be instructed to have the names altered accordingly forthwith and the Registration Officer notified.

Have found "Horner's Yard" on the 1921 Census, followed immediately by the "Post Office" and then "The Street". You can see the "P.O" on this 1923 map -
All very close to St. Mary's Church.

An article on the renovation of the Manuden War Memorial includes "Joseph Bayford, husband of Ann Ada Bayford of Horner's Yard, Manuden". Ann Ada Bayford appears on the Electoral Roll 1918-1929, address "The Village, Parish of Manuden".

9 newspaper hits for the above paper (on BNA) for "Homer's Yard, Manuden" are returned when searching under the search key" Homers Yard" (1930-1944). But when viewing the actual newspaper article the name is clearly "Horner's Yard". Several relate to the activities of the parish church (St Mary's?).

The Lighter Side / Re: Unregistered births in the 1800s. Any experiences?
« on: Wednesday 22 March 23 16:31 GMT (UK)  »
There are 5 birth registrations, surname Stokes, mother Britton, for Witham -
Alfred 1842, John 1847, Lucy 1850, George Alfred 1855, Eliza 1856. A Frederic Stokes was registered 1839, Witham but no mother's surname.

There are Witham death registrations for Alfred Stokes, 1842, age 0; John Stokes, 1848, age 0; George Alfred, 1855, age 0.

Seems only Isabel missed being registered?

Try "Know Your Place" Bristol.
Select Bristol.
Search (Use spyglass top left) to find Sion Hill.
Follow the road north - at the end is Clifton Down Hotel.

Old map on left; modern map on right.
On present day junction of Sion Place and Gloucester Street.

The above is my go to map when checking Bristol.
I did check Historical Directories and found a Mark Thomas Cuba Cottage but couldn't find him in Census. Newspapers also reported "Henks" and "Hicks" at Cuba Cottage but again drew a blank on Census.

Shaun, good 1911 find!!

I think the Bath Hotel disappeared in 1864 - so no use as a reference point!!

Another newspaper refers to Cuba Cottage as close to the Clifton Downs Hotel. Looking at Streetview, at the top end of Sion Hill is Bridge House, which would appear to be the former Clifton Downs Hotel.

The area is unchanged from the 19th century maps I've been checking but which one is Cuba Cottage still a mystery.
