151 According to Berry's Surrey Genealogies, Richard Glover purchased the farm of Norwoods in 1584. Glover, Richard Yeoman of Norwoods, Cudham, Kent (I5279)
152 According to her grandson Maurice O'Donoghue of Drumnacurra (son of her daughter Bridget), Bridget was a Dee of Cleandries townland, next door to Drumnacurra townland. With (i) Cleandries appearing in her marriage register entry, (ii) a Halloran witness at her marriage, and (iii) later family connections, this must be correct - Bridget's estimated birth year placing her nicely in a gap as the eldest child of William Dee and Elizabeth Halloran of Cleandries (no ascertainable baptismal register entry - as for brother John Dee born c 1830- but register in very poor condition). Dee, Bridget (I47)
153 According to Jack and Bridie's son Thomas Donohue in Jan 1980, his parents were not closely related. Family (F190)
154 According to Moray District Council Archives - libindx index [YET TO BE VERIFIED FROM A PRIMARY SOURCE] Dunbar, Patrick of Blervie (I2957)
155 according to the forms of the Free Presbyterian Church of Scotland. Family (F57)
156 According to Uncle Doug Grant, Ernie disappeared from NZ and was never heard from again. Doug thought he went to South Africa or somewhere. I traced him to Tasmania. As he was later a racehorse trainer, with a father who was a Primitive Methodist, there may have been some intolerance from his father. Lynn, Ernest James (Ernie) Racehorse trainer in Hobart, Tasmania (I787)
157 According to: Power, ?Celia (I631)
158 Accused together with his 1st surviving son (John Forbes, Master of Forbes) of treason and both imprisoned in Edinburgh Castle 1536; he was eventually released but his son was executed. [Cracroft's Peerage] Forbes, John 6th Lord Forbes, Accused of treason (I2093)
159 Achnara in Shiness was used as a farm name in 1790s. Possibly a contraction of Ach na h-earrann ( = field of divisions) = Achnanerain = Achnairn (as currently used) [per Malcolm Bangor-Jones] Matheson, Hugh Ground Officer for the Sutherland Estate in Assynt (I810)

Simmonds, Edward Moir (Moir) Railway porter in Dunedin (I109)
161 Address: 55 Wells Way, Camberwell, London Borough of Southwark, Greater London, SE5 7TW England.
St George’s Church was built in 1824 to accommodate the local population explosion, which was too much for the Camberwell parish church of St Giles. The church was severely damaged by fire in 1980 and left roofless and vandalised for most of the 1980s. It re-opened in 1994 as thirty ‘Mediterranean-style’ one-bedroom flats, run by St George’s Housing Co-operative. The remains in the crypt were re-buried in Nunhead Cemetery in 1993. []

166 After the Battle of Culloden on 16 April 1746, Charles went into hiding, but through his wife's influence he secured a pardon (she was presented to George II and described her husband as a "fool"). He lived for 18 years after Culloden, but was uncomfortable at home while others were being hunted about the country. [Jacobites of 1745 by F McDonnell] Cumine, Charles 3rd of Kininmonth, Jacobite (I4307)

174 Alexander's death notice records: To the integrity of conduct which distinguished his character, was added great activity in the management of his business, and in providing for his numerous family, who, as well as his affectionate and disconsolate widow, have now to lament their irreparable loss.
Taylor, Alexander MA (Marischal), of Mill of Balmaud (I70)
175 Alexander's parentage is unknown and there is no apparent baptism recorded for him. However for the period 1762-1769, only three entries of baptisms for Fort Augustus have survived. Alexander's place in family calculated only by reference to his patronymic, his occupation and from the year of marriage, together with his sister Margaret's approximate birth year based on her age at death as recorded on her gravestone. Hs elder brother's baptism is recorded in 1761, leaving a nice gap around 1763, which would make him roughly age 20 the year he married. Macdonell alias McNeil, Alexander Butcher in Fort Augustus (I4212)
176 Alive at the time of her daughter Janet Dunbar's marriage contract with Patrick Cumming of Erneside in 1657. Fraser, Ann of Inverness (I2038)

183 All Hallows, Bread Street, London burial register 1596:
“Apr. 5 about x a clocke at nyght was buried in this churche the bodye of Masteir John Topp of this pishe, marchant taylor, whose Funnerall weare also observed in this church the xvii th day of this said monthe of Aprell l596 
Toppe, John or Tapp, Merchant Tailor in London (I2153)
184 Already married when brother Henry made his will in 1558. Family (F7)
185 Also known as Patrick - his name from Gaelic freely translates into either Peter or Patrick. Mason, Peter Mason and ferryman over the River Oich at Fort Augustus (I103)
186 Also referred to in court papers as Louisa. Kay, Lucy (I1383)
187 Although Charles' birth certificate records Seacliff as his place of birth and he himself gives his place of birth as Seacliff, he may have been born, more specifically, at home at Omimi nearby. Donald, Charles Hammond Farmer and publican in Otago and South Canterbury (I18)
188 Although he was registered as Walter Taylor, he was known as Walter Ernest Taylor. Taylor, Walter Ernest (Watt) Boer War and WW1 veteran, Hairdresser and Tobacconist in Dunedin (I764)
189 Although no baptisms appear in Inverness parish records for sons Duncan and William Munro (who constantly witnessed the baptisms of each others' children), each named their eldest sons James, perhaps leading to an inference that their father was named James Munro. There is only one James Munro I can trace on the Culloden estate at the time - James Munro, tenant farmer at Culchunaig. This James has the baptism of an early child recorded in the parish registers, as well as a child some years later, with an extremely large 22 year gap in the middle - towards the end of which, brothers Duncan and James would appear. Parentage cannot be proven, but there is I think fairly good circumstantial evidence that James Munro at Culchunaig was the father of Duncan and William. I have therefore recorded James Munro and his wife Anne Clark as the putative parents of Duncan and William.
It is also possible that there is an intermediate generation.
Munro, James Tenant farmer at Culchunaig, Culloden (at the very edge of the Battle of Culloden in 1746) (I4470)
190 Always known as Kate/Katie, but used Catherine in documents such as her marriage certificate. Geaney, Catherine (Kate) (I517)
191 Always known by family and friends as Mon, or sometimes Monica. O'Donoghue, Bridget Monica (Mon) (I737)
192 Always referred to her birthplace as Bluecliffs, South Canterbury. She was born at the family home on the Bluecliffs Road, in Upper Otaio (later renamed Esk Valley), which led from St Andrews to Bluecliffs Station (a large sheep station), the nearest landmark. O'Donoghue, Margaret Augusta (Aggie) (I8)
193 Always used William Jesse, but birth registered only as Jesse. Godfrey, William Jesse (Jesse) Coachman/Hansom cab driver in London (I577)
194 Ambrose described as Soldier in the Princess of Wales Light Dragoons Family (F1619)
195 Ampney Crucis marriages: 1758 November 21st Richard Iles of Kempsford and Mary Bowne  Family (F631)
196 An alternative is that John Macdonell alias McNiel butcher in Fort Augustus was the first to bear the hereditary patronymic of McNiel, with John being a son of a Neil Macdonell. Possible. Macdonell alias McNeil, ?Donald (I4210)
197 An Angus McDonell, pensioner in Fort Augustus was a witness at baptism of Isabel Mason daughter of Peter Mason and Janet McDonell in 1784. Macdonell, ?Angus Army pensioner (I4485)
198 An eldest son John Williams is named in his father's will and is the primary beneficiary. Williams, John (I1688)
199 An inquest was held yesterday on the body of Mr Thomas Edward Turpin, who was accidentally killed on Saturday through the horse he was riding falling over him. The deceased, who resided at the Taieri, leaves a wife and three children. He was 38 years old, and a native of Croydon, England. The verdict was: Accidental death. [Otago Daily Times 4 February 1873]

Another report: Mr Hocken, the City Coroner, held an inquiry at the Hillside Hotel, at noon today, into the cause of the death of a carrier named Thomas Turpin, which occurred on Saturday. The deceased had that day purchased a horse, which he rode to his house at West Taieri, and when near Hillside, on returning to town, it shied at a passing dray, threw him and fell over him, death being almost instantaneous. Turpin was 38 years of age, a native of England, and leaves a widow and several children.

And another: A fatal accident occurred at Hill Side to11 bar, on Saturday evening. Mr Thomas Turpin, carrier, purchased a horse during the day, which ho rode to his house at the West Taieri. He afterwards set out to return to town, riding the same animal. When about the end of his journey, near the Hill Side toll-gate, his horse shied at a passing dray, fell, and rolled over him. Mr Turpin death was almost instantaneous; he just breathed a little after the accident. He leaves a widow and several children to deplore his loss.
Turpin, Thomas Edward Accidentally killed by his horse falling on him (I27)
200 An unheroic figure, dogged, querulous and afflicted with hypochondria, he represents one side of colonial public service: self-seeking mediocrity. [Australian Dictionary of Biography, Volume 1, (MUP), 1966] Full entry:
