In the list of the Old Streets, &c., a number will be found which have an asterisk attached to them. These indicate cases where variations of titles have occurred in my time, or where an old name was used during that period, though possibly discontinued afterwards, yet in cases within my recollection. Respecting the Old Streets, &c., it must be understood that who have a good personal knowledge of the facts or incidents occurring from fifty to sixty years ago, and occasionally at a longer interval.

In a great number of instances I have obtained dates, &c., from the Borough Records, and on other occasions from Thoroton, Deering, Blackner, Stretton, and the various rare sources of information which I hold. I believe that there has been no previous attempt to schedule the old place names connected with Nottingham, and especially with so many dates, etc., associated with them; though I considered that most or all of my readers would be glad to have all this matter in a concise and available form.

Deering died February 25, 1749, his history being published in 1751, and I now propose to conclude my last paper on "The Old Streets of Nottingham" by giving an extract, with explanations relating to ground, which from what he says at that period could not be considered of much importance, but is now one of the busiest spots in Nottingham. The low estimation in which it was held in his time is proved by the fact that, though it was central, and really part of a main road, it actually appears to have been almost scouted, and considered unworthy even of a distinctive name.

After referring to some town crosses, near which at that period various markets were held, he says on p. 9:— "Over and above all these markets, a Monday Market was lately endeavoured to be established 'on a piece of waste ground,' between the West End of St. Peter's Church-yard, Wheelergate and Houndgate, which attempt tho' it did not answer the End, because the Country People would not take to it, yet has proved an Advantage to the Town, for this Place which is in the Heart of the Town was a meer Sink before; and dangerous to pass especially in the night, is now made good, and as well paved as any other part of Nottingham; the Cross with a Roof supported by four Pillars is now walled in, and proves a very convenient Receptacle for the Town's Fire Engines, and on Saturdays it is the Sheep Market and Folds, which formerly were placed in the Great Market Place, being now removed to this, they stand along the West and North Sides of St. Peter's Church-yard, and at the East End of Houndgate."

The first reference I could find to "Peters Square" was in Willoughby's rare little Directory of 1799, and my unique plan of Nottingham of 1800, as St. Peter's Square. I have also another rare and useful book for my purpose, dated 1772, but as I cannot find any reference to the name or place none seem to have been given. Stretton, however, in his recently issued notes on p. 156, tells us regarding 1787, that "The space of ground had now conferred upon it a new name (i.e.) St. Peter's Square."
