    Hi Mandy, I've only managed to find 'Mill Lane' & 'Mill Court' on the 1848 OS map attached.

    'Mill Place' - if you look at the pattern of development around the museums....Harmony Place, Queen's Place, Union Place, Devonshire Place, 'Fitch' Place [looks like] then the "Vegetable Market". Considering Mill lane & Mill Court are close together, I think the market would have absorbed Mill Place when it was created?

    thanks Daz,they are the maps I was looking at .......the marriage took place 22nd September 1856 (my birthday...not the year) at St Johns Church so Mill place should be on the 1848 map

    The "1848" OS map is a little misleading. At the very bottom it says "New Railways, Houses, &o, inserted in 1864". And since the Museum was only handed over the keys on 18th October, 1860. It would seem that this building was added in later.

    Checking Gores [1821 & 1843] I found two entry which refer to "Mill Place, Shaw's Brow". So it was either on the site of the museum/library, or the vegetable market? The 1848 OS was engraved in 1850. I would check with LRO, as sometimes they have the earlier editions. If they have 1850, I'm sure you'll find 'Mill Place' located on it.

    Good luck.
