Transcribed by Colin Hinson ©2003] Additional Note:

[1] The B. in "John Addison B. Cresswell" stands for BAKER. John Addison CRESSWELL, of Cresswell, Northumberland, changed his surname to CRESSWELL-BAKER within a year of marrying Elizabeth Mary REED on 25 June 1818 at Camberwell Church, Camberwell, London. She was the heiress of John BAKER of Spitalfields, London, and Hinton on the Green, Gloucs. Under the terms of his will in 1818 (PCC PROB 10/7405) the inheritor of Hinton on the Green had to add the name of BAKER to his own within 12 months. In 1825 (25 Aug) his surname was changed again to BAKER-CRESSWELL and the arms of the BAKER family (a goat) and CRESSWELL (a squirrel) were quartered together (See Burke's LG, 1965 Edn. p 173).
