I found a deed in Suffolk County, Massachusetts for a unknown place in Boston today. Can you tell me where in the 1740's "Turnagain(e) Alley" was located?
The location of where Turagaine Alley was still exists as Temple Place in Boston today. Turnagain Alley was named by the then town of Boston May 3, 1708. It was an alley leading from the east of the Boston Common on the north side of Madam Usher's house. The Alley was renamed Temple Place in 1830. This reference source is the publication by the City of Boston, A Record of the Streets, Alley's, Places, Etc., in the City of Boston. (Boston, City of Boston Printing Dept., 1910), pg. 466.
