    Default Parliament Fields 1865

    I have a family story of a little boy abducted and being left on Parliament Fields.
    This took place in 1865, the family where living in Vine Street in the 1861 Census, which is by Crown Street.
    Can anyone pinpoint the positon of Parliament Fields in 1865, I was thinking the top of Upper Parliament Street?
    Any help please most welcome.

    I also believe this to be the area between Upper Parliament St and Prince's Rd, so your guess is correct

    Default Parliament Fields 1865

    Is there a map for 1865 showing The Parliament Fields exact location.
    The maps I have seen dont give a name to this area.
    Is there a reference to these fields and there location.

    Unfortunately, while most maps will show fields, they don't name them, but I agree with Taffy that Parliament Fields were between Upper Parliament Street and Princes Road.

    Would these Parliament Fields have run right up to the junction of Lodge Lane anp Upper Parliament Street.
    Also in what documentaion has thse fields been named?

    People are only trying to help.
    If you're going to keep demanding proof you're going to put people off answering your questions.
    We read things and remember them, but don't always remember the sources.
    Might I suggest that the name 'Parliament Fields' dictates where they were.
