Transcriber's notes

In the Descriptive Remarks for the name "Huxter" [Mr Bruce] taken from the description of the name "Treawick" on page 85.
Suspect the spelling of Mr Lisk in the Authorities should be Leask, as per the authority "James Leask" on this page.
Alterations to the spelling of the name "Veeda Stack" have been initialled "WF" [William Fraser c/a [civilian assistant]]
From different ink used the version of the name "Burn of Huxer" has been Re-submitted - this annotation being indicated in another name book.
