A John Fisher owned property within the area bounded by Forbes Place, Water Brae and Causeyside Street, and possibly elsewhere in the area.  Water Brae is now incorporated in Forbes Place, but at one time ran parallel to the R.Cart.

The property is shown on an 1838 Plan of Paisley, held in the ScotlandsPeople records, and not in the National Library of Scotland - Maps Section.

The NLS however has a fascinating Fire Insurance plan of the same area C1888 by Goad showing a multitude of named and nameless access lanes to weaving, spinning and warehousing operations all relating to textile and shawl production.
