A "bait stable" is one which feeds and houses your horse.

"Car" is much more vague and generally refers to any enclosed transport (the motor car an obvious exception in that it wasn't always enclosed).

Could your ancestors have owned one of these
Phaeton is the early 19th-century term for a sporty open carriage drawn

by a single horse or a pair, typically with four extravagantly large

wheels, very lightly sprung, with a minimal body, fast and dangerous.

It usually had no sidepieces in front of the seats.


A barouche was a fashionable type of horse-drawn carriage in the 19th

century. Developed from the calash of the 18th century,[1] it was a

four-wheeled, shallow vehicle with two double seats inside, arranged

vis--vis, so that the sitters on the front seat faced those on the

back seat.

waggonette
a light four-wheeled horse-drawn vehicle with two lengthwise seats

facing each other behind a crosswise driver's seat
