General note

Elizabeth Cottage at 251 Brock Street was named after architect Edward Horsey's daughter, Elizabeth, who was married to Doctor Fyfe Fowler, Dean of Medicine at Queen's University. Mr. Horsey designed and built this house in 1841-1843 modelled on his former Gothic manor home at Sherborne, England. In 1954, Elizabeths eldest daughter, Louise Fowler, shortly before her death, bequeathed the house as a residence for elderly ladies of modest means who were no longer able to maintain their own homes. (Information taken from page 79 of 'Kingston Splendid Heritage' by Mikos).
