Rock Cottage

Here are two pictures of Rock Cottage (built in 1830), on Beeston Mount, the first from about 1905, and the second from 2015. The first picture is of the Stewart family, with Joseph Stewart, the head of the family, at the centre, together with his wife Fanny, and their 9 children Hedley, William, Robert, Donald, Connie, Doris, Beattie, Gordon and Norman. The second picture is of Linda Stewart, great-grand-daughter of Joseph Stewart, and grand-daughter of Donald Stewart. Donald Stewart and his wife Stella ran the Dog and Partridge pub for a time. Members of the Stewart family lived there until 2000, 100 years in total!
