Please tell us about West End and surrounding areas

"In 1814, a rumour circulated of a young rich heiress with a human body and a head of a pig, who lived near Manchester Square. The papers soon stoked up the rumour as a ruse, and soon they were inundated with requests from male suitors to meet her. One even attempted to place an advert in the Times offering a proposal of marriage!"
