Do you know where The Peacock Inn once was in Hyde hill Berwick. John Cowen was Innkeeper in 1806 and he died 1825 aged 82 yrs. My 3rd Great Grandfather Nicholas Moore Cowen b.1838 lived in Walkergate Lane in 1841- and I am trying to find out if there was a family link! My 4th Great grandfather was John Cowen b.1807 in Berwick. I visited Holy Trinity church and his baptism was there naming his father as William Cowen of Lilburn and mother Mary Nisbet. Any info would be appreciated! Thanks Andrea

The Peacock is actually listed in an 1806 directory as Sandgate but was at the bottom of Hide Hill where the Bank of Scotland now stands.
