Yes got that, it's probably me not being clear (just for a change )

I also mis-read the more recent map. Is it building No.1 on this 1864 map? Is it Warkworth Cottage then? or is Warkworth Cottage No.2??

Morwick Gate (3) is shown as two buildings either site of the road into Morwick township, literally 'Morwick gate' I suppose.
The others (1,2) are in Warkworth township/civil parish

Those buildings are possibly identifiable on the Census returns. They are on the page near 'Old Barns' farm. There are two more premises in the list on from Old Barns, which looks correct, as Morwick Gate would be on the Morwick return.

I can see on the 1891 census; Warkworth Cottage, occupied by Agnes Mary Buchanan, 56, living on her own means, and her servant Martha Ternent, 18.

and Creston? Cottage occupied by John Potter, 60, Joiner.
