The street from the house up to St.Nicholas' church was called "Ædie's Wynd".
A "wynd" is a lane.

It was demolished in 1914.
The site is now an empty lot.

I have spent a great deal of time and money on this research. Research involves travel and many expenses.
Some research "things to do" are not done for years, because I do not have the money to do them.
