Transcriber's notes

Some words in the Description remarks are lost in the binding gutter so the visible text, which has been transcribed, does not always make sense

The words 'at the South east and corner of Tower Moor' have been stroked out, in context 'A small cottage at the South east and corner of Tower Moor'.
