  As described in "Smith's Strangers Guide to Liverpool" in the year 1843

PRINCE RUPERT'S COTTAGE. - This small cottage was the head quarters of the Prince during the siege of the town, mentioned in the ancient history, at the commencement of the volume. It is a small white-washed and thatched cottage, one story high, a little above Everton Brow, having still the same humble appearance which it had when occupied by the illustrious visitor.

In the neighbourhood are several houses of considerable antiquity. Till the year 1803, a Beacon, erected probably in the reign of Henry III., stood on the site of St. George's Church, Everton. It was a square tower, two stories high, capable of holding a small garrison, and on the roof were placed combustible materials for the purpose of giving a signal of alarm to the beacons of Rivington Pike and Ashurst. When the country had ceased to be distracted by civil wars, the tower fell into decay, and was blown down during a storm in 1803.

It is lighted by seven windows on each side, between each of which is an abutment terminating in a pinnacle. The whole of the window-frames, pillars, arches, groins, roof, &c. are of cast iron, giving the interior a light and tasteful appearance. In the church is a beautifully painted window, and at the other end of the church is a Gothic tower, 96 feet high, each angle of which is finished by a pinnacle.

Address: Everton Village, Everton, L.5 - 1843

  As described in "Bygone Liverpool" in the year 1913

Fifty years ago (1800ish) Everton was a courtly place, wherein resided the richest merchants, the most distinguished citizens, and the most fashionable and leading families. Within the memory of middle-aged people, the whole range of the hill-side extending from the back, of Brunswick Road and under Plumpton Terrace, and the rear of Shaw Street, to Everton village, or ' Town,' as it used to be termed, there was not a house to be seen, while from the north side to Kirkdale all the land was fields and gardens.

Very old people recollect how beautiful the view was once from the Beacon Hill, and they have spoken with animation of the lovely prospect they could obtain from Everton Lane, over Mr. Plumpton's breast-high wall, which was skirted by lofty trees, of the distant town, the river, and the Cheshire shore. Plumpton Terrace now occupies the site of the wall, the trees, the brushwood, and the crest of the green fields.

To the Beacon Hill came crowds of holiday folks, whenever an ' out ' was to be obtained ; and truly they must have enjoyed a prospect of no common order, embracing, as it did, town, village, plain, pasture, river, and ocean. From the Beacon a view of fully thirty miles round could be obtained, and under certain conditions of light and atmosphere a distance of fifty miles could be compassed."

  As described in "Bygone Liverpool" in the year 1913

EVERTON'S old Village Cross was at a later date used as a sundial. It eventually stood in the way of traffic, but its demolition was stoutly opposed for old sake's sake. However, its removal was decided on, and was carried out during the night ; and when some of the old residents awoke the next morning, they were greatly shocked to learn that its old standing-place would know it no more.

  As described in "A History of Liverpool" in the year 1907

Sir Edward Moore, in the seventeenth century claimed that they had been settled in Liverpool from the beginning of its history. They held even more land in the town than the Liverpools, but unlike the Liverpools they also acquired large holdings outside of the borough, in Bootle, Kirkdale, West Derby, and other townships.

Their original seat, Moore Hall, lay at the northern end of the village, and its croft and gardens ran down to the shore of the river. When they acquired lands in Kirkdale, and built a country house at Bank Hall, their older house was called the Old Hall ; in this form it has given its name to a modern Liverpool street.
