Transcriber's notes

Ellergoffe Knowe AND Allagouchie Hill were BOTH pre-entered as if they were separate places, rather than alternative renderings of the name of one place. In the Index only Allagouchie Hill is listed. On the page, the List of Names as Written has originally had Allagouchie Hill, but this has been crossed out and Ellergoffe Knowe inserted.
