Notes

  1. The name, date and description appears only in the tdlhs data base and is not yet confirmed by supporting evidence.
  2. The name, date and description appears only in the NRO index and is not yet confirmed by supporting evidence.
  3. Charles Gibbes. This entry in the tdlhs data base is probably wrong. Charles Gibbes was a solicitor who died in 1779. In 1774 he wtinessed the Will of William Lax, barber and peruke maker.
  4. Francis Gibbes. His name was originally Gibbs but was changed to Gibbes during his lifetime. Some documents use one form, some the other.
  5. John Goodchild. His occupation might have been grazier, not carrier.
