Hi Dale,
I don't know who John Cross was, described as a character of the town, not a worthy. The only other description of a John Cross I can find is in Hillens -

' At the beginning of the 19th century, the corporation guns were drawn up on the Saturday market place.upon every state occasion to add 'eclat to the conviviality of those in authority. As the banquet proceeded, the so called King John's cup, filled with champagne, was reverently place before the newly-elected Mayor. Then from the beautiful Gothic window a stentorian voice might have been heard, exclaiming, "My master the Mayor is about to propose a toast. John Cross, fire the guns!" *
*Query : The survival of a Danish custom - see Hamlet, act 1., sc.4, lines 7-16 '


Maybe we will find out more :smt102

The building over the head of the lady on the bike is the one in the picture of the blacksmith's shop which was firstly thought to be in True's Yard.

If you look at this pic, just to the right of the door down the wall in
faint outline you will see the word MUSIC I was told today that this
building was once a music hall. It is now S&T Shipping agents.

When looking through the Theatre file in the Library for anything to do
with the old Music Hall on the Fort, I came across this, and as I have
a couple of pics of the place, but did not know where it stood, quite
chuffed to have found this.

More recent times, Trues yard (far left) still Southgates shop. I know Harry Southgate had the shop on the opposite corner but I can't remember which Southgate owned the Trues yard one, anyone know?
