Bell Street runs from 60 Candleriggs to Hunter Street in the Calton. It is named after Sir John Bell, a Provost of Calton. The portion from High Street to Calton was originally known as Graeme Street, and named after Robert Graeme, Sheriff Substitute.

The portion west of High Street was originally a 17c wynd, as the east side of High Street was continuous with buildings at that point.

I think the point about the numbering of Bell Street is spot on, as before the eastern extended portion, the numbers would probably have run from High Street through to Candleriggs. When the new eastern portion became part of Bell Street it was then numbered from Candleriggs eastwards.

Hi Calamity, it was a cul-de-sac almost facing the telephone exchange on Stevenson Street, and as you say, no longer there.

Hope you don't mind if I contribute some of my local streets in Govan East.




Albert St now Ornkey St
Neptune street In the first map is now gone; Queen Street on the old map has now become Neptune St
Princes Street became Vicarfield Street
Baird Street Became Southcroft Street

There are other streets which are shortened with other streets in their places but I omitted these because the original streets still exist.

Scotthiggy - pleased to find your enquiry and the response. Thanks to Stuball.

I am interested in exactly the same two places. My Great-Grandfather Charles Gallagher and his wife Ellen and children lived there, first at 8 Cameron Court (2/10/1872) and then at 59 Richard Street (24/05/1874), both Glasgow. He and his family left for New Zealand onboard the Invercargill on 16/07/1874. Is it just a coincidence that our families both lived in the same streets or are we reseaching the same family.

If I am reading your response correctly Richard Street still exists - is that correct.
