[This transcription has been made from the scanned image held at The National Archives, and is a copy of that in my Windeatts on the Web pages, where much more information is available. I have made this very rough transcription and it was difficult to read and probably contains lots of errors. Check the original for complete accuracy. I have changed the surnames to uppercase to aid family historians.]
