No 2 on East side of Bridge St demised to Joseph Ledbetter in 1752 and has a frontage of 24 ft  10 inches


No 1 in Bridge St is the place intended for the Chapel.

This is let to Miss Jenkins for 10.10 per annum

For 60 to 70 years the meeting house was on back ground adjoining Mr Williams Hotel, this ground is now in Mr Williams' possession and he seems happy for the arrangement to continue.
