Transcriber's notes

Chapel. The part of Description beginning "Mr Brown" is written in pencil across several columns but appears intended as part of the Description.

Also on this page there has been an entry for "St Peter's Free School" which has been scored through, although a portion of Description, beginning "A house 3 Storeys" remains and has been transcribed in additional entries.
