Notes:      

Using the information here, it is impossible to be certain who lived in each property or part of the building before 1893. Other properties involved : 3 Union Street     5 Union Street     7 Union Street      One possible interpretation is given below.

 

Introduction

All 4 properties, 1, 3, 5 & 7 Union Street, were originally 3 stables for the hotel on Tay Street. The southmost 2 stables had been converted to houses by 1833, the remaining one by 1840.

 

Commentary

Before 1893 it is difficult to allocate individuals to each property. Before 1871 it is virtually impossible. What is given here is only a best guess. Unusually, even up to 1889, Miss Mackie seems to list the rentals charged to individuals for rooms, rather than per property.
