= Property demolished or site redeveloped

Commentary

The entries in local taxation returns listed here are tentative, whether the entries are for this property or the inn at St Davids - I am still not certain, in particular, about John Hay. The speculation also applies to 'Andrew Rodger at the Braehead'.
