"We know there was a lesser mound. It was called the "Little Dunghill," and stood near the Terrace and the present Gravel Lane, almost on a line dividing the parishes of St. George and Saint Mary Bredin. From an abstract of an ancient deed, dated 6th December, 1757, in the possession of Mr. Fryer, the present owner of the property, I find it was situated adjoining the house of a Mr. Tassell. It is alluded to afterwards in 1782, as being on the property of Mr. William LONG, one of the Aldermen of the city. The house, now No. 21, in Saint George's Terrace, is in the parish of Saint Mary Bredin. The house adjoining No. 20 is in Saint George's Parish. the mound stood on the site of these two houses, next to a lane called Sheepshank Lane, now Gravel Lane, extending to the brick wall next to the wall of the city. Mention is made in the said deed of there being a messuage upon it. We have no account when this lesser mound was levelled, probably, however, it was demolished when the houses above alluded to were built; nor are we sure it was in existence at the date of the deed."
