Transcriber's notes

The word "Free" has been deleted from both the List of Names and Various modes of Spelling columns but the note ""Free Church" on this plan", initialled by "J.B", along with the bracketed word (Free) has been added below Church in List of Names column (by the examiner?).

Words or part words, missing or obscured in the fold, have been shown in [ ] and, where possible, surmised from sense of sentence.
The word "Sustentation" and the meaning of "Scrog" have been verified from an online search -
In Descriptive remarks for Scrogend the word(s) shown as [--] could be "suitable offices" as in previous similar entries but the space does not seem enough for that.
