Partish Lane?
« on: Friday 22 January 21 04:32 GMT (UK) »
Hi
Can anyone tell me if there was a Partish Lane, Thanles Lane or Baehot Lane in Chilmark please?

Unsure what period but can't find maps that are that detailed

Many thanks
Meegan

Hi

There is a Port Ash Lane on the 1773 map shown here:

Could you give a link or say where you found the names so we can look at them and see what alternative names might also fit?  Or is the writing and spelling very clear?

Context and approximate era (decade perhaps) might help. Eg 1760s? 1960s?

I would go with Portash or Port Ash as the name of the first one.  Portash is now an outlying area of Chilmark, but obviously at one time there was a lane out of Chilmark which led to Portash and known locally as Portash Lane. 

Interestingly there is a house called Ellan Thie in the Portash area near Chilmark, although that might be connected with the occupant's liking for railways or the Isle of Man.

There is also a Beckett Lane in Chilmark.

Any of those might be possibilities, but it does depend on the dates.

Ellan Thie translates as Island House ;D
Thie being house; Ellan Vannin being Manx for Isle of Man ;)

It had to be something like that.  And the house is on a triangle of land - effectively an island!

(Sorry - gone off topic  ;) )

Hi everyone, thanks for your input. Have attached the originals - I'm transcribing Census 1891. I have read Partish and Parlish but can't read them as Port Ash. Appreciate your help

Cheers
