Has anyone any idea where this might have been. I have a Jonathan Gill living there in 1871 but cannot place the location.

It doesn't seem to be named on the available O.S. maps but looking at census returns for people who lived there, it was somewhere near Cowmes Bottom, Spa Green and Peace Hall:

If you look at the Yorkshire 247 map of 1854, it's down in the bottom left hand corner.

George Asquith was a blacksmith of Cowmes Side and I suspect the houses were named after him. His widow, Mary, lived at Asquith's Place (also named Asquith's Buildings).
