Description: "The Duke of Athol parting with the Royalties in 1765, this place, [i.e. Peel] which chiefly subsisted by illicit commerce, lost much of its importance…There are here, as in other towns in the Isle of Man, shops well stocked with a variety of goods, and a small, but most excellent inn, kept by Long from Carlisle.” (Nathaniel Jefferys, A Descriptive and Historical Account of the Isle of Man, 1809, M 00904)
