[1] Mary BARTLEY widow of Joseph BARTLEY

[2] Joseph BARTLEY. NOTE: I have no other record of a Joseph Bartley.

[3] Mary BALLE I suspect this is Mary BARTLEY. They are other instances in this Memorial of uncrossed Ts and dropped letters.

[4] Dacre HAMILTON. I am unsure which one this might be. I suspect he was the Dacre HAMILTON (d 1837) who was dreaded land agent who built Cornacassa in about 1800.  He was a son of James HAMILTON (1718-1792) and Catherine HAMILTON (his cousin)
