Description:
Undated. This old photograph is entitled "Heale's House, Meanwood". On the 1881 census a John Brown Heeles of Meanwood Hill is listed with his wife, two daughters and son John William. Heeles and Son were land and estate agents, accountants, surveyors and values with premises at 14 Infirmary Street in Leeds. The business was established in 1844 and Heeles and Son also published the monthly Yorkshire Estates Gazette. However, we do not know the exact location of this house so would appreciate any further information.

Meanwood Hill is now Fosse House at the Junction of Parkside Road and Stonegate Road but the picture doesn't immediately match.

The 1881 Census states Chapel Allerton as the Civil Parish ( in the 'village' of Meanwood ) for this family along with their servant and a groom and his wife. The next family down on the Return live on Chapel Lane, and the next family - the Mapletons - at The Vicarage ( presumably within striking distance of a church? ). This might help locate a more precise location for the house. Alas, I don't know the Meanwood area but I'm sure someone out there can be of more help!

Note the two small blocked off windows in the gable. Their style is completely out of step with all the others, which appear to be improvements of a much later date. Could we be looking at a surviving historical record; a reminder of the infamous "Window Tax" which ran from 1696 until its repeal in 1851?

Is it the old house which used to be the vets Easton & Wannop? On the corner of Stonegate Road & Stainbeck Lane. Opposite the end of Parkside Road.

'Meanwood Hill'- the name of the house- is marked on the 1890 and 1910 maps (Tracks in Time) as being on Parkside Road.
