Wear pen is a property in the northeastern section of the parish of Manchester. Prior to 1814 this section of Manchester was a part of the parish of St. Elizabeth. In the early 1800s the property was owned by James Davy. His name appears on several pages on this site, and there is a discussion of the names of this and other properties in the area at Heavitree and Wear Pen. That page has been updated in February 2007.
