Inhabitants of Plymouth Dock/Stoke Damerel 1791

Below is a full transcription of the Plymouth Dock/Stoke Damerel sections of the 1791 Universal Directory of Great Britain - from the CD version I purchased from the Archive CD Books project. I don't think this is available for sale anymore, but your local Latter Day Saints may hold a copy.

About two miles up the mouth of the Tamar (which inlet of the sea is called Hamoaze, as the mouth of the other is Catwater, and commanded by the castle on St. Nicholas Island) are two docks, built in the reign of William III, one wet, the other dry, (with two others that have been built since,) that has all the conveniences for building or repairing ships, is hewn out of a mine of slate, and lined with Portland stone. The dry dock is built after the mould of a first-rate man of war; and the wet dock will contain five of the same bigness. What followed there, as it were of course, was the building of storehouses and warehouses for the rigging, sails, &c. of such ships as may be appointed to be laid up there; with very handsome houses for the commissioner, clerks, and officers of all kinds usual in the king's yards, to dwell in.

Adjoining the yard is also a gun-wharf, where all the cannon belonging to the men of war, lying in the Sound in the time of peace, are laid up. This wharf is remarkable for being hewn out of, and contained within, a solid rock. It contains an arsenal and magazines, in which are generally kept a large quantity of arms and stores, in like order, though not in so great a quantity, as those in the Tower of London. It has also, within the walls, houses for the officers belonging to his majesty's stores within this place. Here are likewise spacious and very commodious barracks for the soldiers who lie here, and consist of a number of squares well supplied with water. This place is, in short, now become as complete an arsenal, and yard, for building and fitting out men of war, as any the government are masters of; and perhaps more convenient than some of them, though not so large; and this has occasioned a proportional increase of building to the town, which has now become a very considerable, well-built, and large, place, and has the name of Plymouth Dock, but generally Dock

Plymouth Dock, Devonshire.

The town of Plymouth Dock lies about two miles below Plymouth. It is nearly as large as Plymouth itself, as the list of inhabitants will shew. A new Balloon coach sets out every morning for Exeter, Bristol, Bath, and London, from Mr. Lockyer’s, the Old King’s Arms Inn and Tavern. A diligence sets out every morning at six o’clock for London, Bath, Bristol, and Portsmouth, from Mr. John Sole’s, the Fountain Inn and Tavern.

* Plymouth Dock/Stoke Damerel/Devonport were one and the same place. Over the centuries this has confused writers and journalists, so they were often documented under different headings.

* I replaced the original sign for the pound note, the letter 'l', with the modern sign, '£'
* I replaced the original letter 's' (the old fashioned version that looks like a long 'f'), with the modern day version of 's'.
* Where a star * is shown above, it represents a letter or letters I could not read.
* Where just a hyphen or dash is shown above, this is how it is written in the 1791 document.
