110 - St Ann's Chapel (site of)

" A chapel of St Ann, which has escaped the notice of former
antiquaries. On the 19th November 1804 the town council of
Haddington purchased the tenement called St Ann's Chapel
which belonged to Thomas ShanKs, wheelwright in order
that it and the contiguous tenements might be taKen
down and an open area formed as an ornament to the
Street. The town paid £155 Sterling for this ruinous
tenement and an equal sum for one adjoining to Widow
BorthwicK's. This projected improvement however was not
carried into effect and the ruins of St Ann's and BorthwicKs tenement were sold in 1813
to Mr McWatt late builder in Haddington in whose hands the author has seen the title deeds.
Mr McWatt erected those substantial buildings called St Ann's Place on the spot."
