    I guess it depends on where you were brought up? I don't see the Canning area as separate from my part of Liverpool as they are so close. Dingle wasn't really mentioned when I was growing up but I was lost there once and called names.

    [QUOTE=dazza;201596]Hi guys, I thought I'd share with you some old photo's that I've collected of the Dingle area. It features Dingle glen, which was a wooded valley and natural beauty spot leading right down to the Mersey. More notoriously, it was the site of the last duel to be fought in Liverpool - between Mr Sparling, of St. Domingo house, and Mr Grayson, an eminent ship builder, on Sunday morning, 7.00am 24th February, 1804. I've also included some maps and photo's to help you get your bearings. I hope you enjoy, regards,

    Daz, Just read this piece regarding duelling in Liverpool:

    The last duel in Liverpool was fought in 1805 between Colonel John Bolton and Major Brooks, with Bolton emerging the winner.

    John Bolton was born in Ulverston, Cumbria in 1756 and traded in the West Indies before settling in Liverpool around 1790, living at 116 Duke Street (pictured right). A staunch patriot, in 1797 he contributed 500 to a committee set up to defend Liverpool after French troops had landed at Fishguard. He then set up his own Liverpool Volunteers in 1803 at his own expense. Becoming known as the Bolton Invincibles, they trained at Mosslake Fields on the edge of the town.

    In 1804 Customs Jerker Major Edward Brooks asked for an increase in his salary. Bolton, President of the West India Association refused, allegedly saying that 700 per year was more than enough for a single man to live on. Brooks challenged Bolton to a duel on 20th December at Millers Dam on Aigburth Road. Quite why he issued such a serious challenge on this a matter is not known, but coincidentally Brooks was also from Ulverston and their feud may have been long running. After a tip off, both were arrested on their way and bound over to keep the peace for 12 months.

    Exactly one year later Brooks insulted Bolton at Castle Street and a challenge was arranged that afternoon. Brooks was arrested for a few hours than issued a new challenge immediately upon his release, which Bolton accepted.Darkness was falling by the time both men arrived. Brooks fired the first shot and missed. Bolton then returned fire and pierced Brooks' eye, causing instant death.

    Bolton went into hiding for a short while and the inquest found him guilty of murder. However, due to public opinion being behind him and the fact he had been challenged by Brooks, he was never charged. Bolton remained in Liverpool political life until his death in 1837 and is buried in the family vault in Bowness church.

    Sorry for being late with the reply. A Customs jerker was the officer responsible in searching for concealed items. Not much different to modern day Customs officers really.
