Transcriber's notes

The first group [continuation of Kelso] were very confusing as regards the servants' names. 4 households with 6 servts between them but only 4 names, bracketed as two groups, 3 and 1. I made a considered judgement as to which household employed the 4th named but i cannot be sure i got it right.
