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. The name appears as Waldron, not Wald in the Admon book.
  4. The date might be 1716 not 1718.
  5. There was a Richard Ward buried aged 10. No others known around this time.
  6. See also David, Ann Watkins.
  7. Perhaps the 1778 and the 1782 Sarah Wilkins are the same person. There are just two wills proved in 1774 and 1778. Some details differ from the tdlhs database.
  8. Maybe spelt Malster, not Maltster.
  9. William Wylcox was buried on 5th January 1709/10. The same person.
