Transcriber's notes

There are initials JBJ below the first three entries in the Orthography and also initials(?) in the List of Names - Won?

Muirside - Orthography - there is some partially erased writing in the first two columns - [Query Muirside Capt --]

Descriptive remarks - there are some dots either side of 'house' in the Charlesfield entry and 'garden' in the Sunnyfield entry. I am not sure if these are intentional as they seem different from the other commas.
