[from Manx Place-names, 1925]
"On Sunday next, December 29th (1822), a sermon will be preached by the Rev. , Thos. F. Winslow, MA., at the Independent Chapel, Peel, and a collection made for the benefit of the Sunday Schools connected with that place.' The writer added, 'The chapel was, I think, that building on the Shore Road, not far from the Rocket House, which had previously been the barrack for the soldiers stationed in Peel, and which was, in later years, turned into cottages.'
When this item appeared, I questioned several of my elderly Peel friends as to the position of the barracks, and they were all of opinion it was where Lucas's restaurant and adjoining properties stood. This would make the site considerably nearer the Quay than Palmer's restaurant. Further evidence that this was the correct site may be had by referring to Kneen's ' Place-Names of Man,' and, under Peel Street Names, on page 405, will be found
1874. H.B.N. Boyde's Lane.
This is the lane, I believe, which runs up the east side of the properties referred to. I never heard either title applied to this cul-de-sac while I resided in Peel, but I have heard it styled ' Fayle's Lane ' from the family living in one of the houses-Yours, &c.,
