Transcriber's notes

From the style of writing only the first three of the seven authorities of "Isbister" would come under "Same Authorities" for the other names on this page.
Suspect the spelling of Mr Lisk in the Authorities should be Leask, as shown against the name "Mid Vord" on page 84.
From different ink used the version of the name "Colvigirts" has been Re-submitted - this annotation being indicated in another name book.
