Walcot, Bath, Somerset Beggars Bush 1740

Marked on a map prepared for Mr Gay showing the northern half of Bath before the development of the Royal, Lansdowne or Camden Crescents. Fields are marked with personal names or field names, and numbers. Beggars Bush is marked 73 and is on the northern boundary with Charlcombe Parish. It is the next field above the junction between what is now Lansdowne Road and Beacon Hill Road. Most of the neighbouring fields have personal names.

I have not found any further references to the name. The field is uneven and undeveloped.
