P. lxxxvi. Gaskarth of Hill-top. The Reverend John Gaskarth, the last of this family who had been settled for many generations at Hilltop in the parish of Crosthwaite, died in 1813. The Countess of Suffolk is the representative of this family.
P. 9. Harby-brow was sold by Francis Highmore to the Blencowes, 5 Jac. I. (fn. n1)
P. 105. The ancient spelling of the parish and barony of Greystock was Greystoke, which mode of spelling was adopted by the late Duke, who died in December 1815. By His Grace's will, Greystoke castle and manor, and his other Cumberland estates, (see p. 109. 142, &c.) were bequeathed to Henry Howard Molineux, Esq. M. P., and his issue, with divers remainders. (fn. n2)
P. cxxxiii. note (b). John Warburton, Esq. Somerset Herald, published in the year 1753, a work in quarto, entitled "Vallum Romanum," containing an account of the several stations and plates of the altars and inscribed stones found in them; but there is little in it of importance, which is not to be found in Horsley's Britannia Romana; and indeed the plates are merely copies of those in Horsley's work, on a reduced scale.

P. lxxvi. We were assured by a communication from the family in 1819, that we had been misinformed as to Mr. Hugh Patrickson being the representative of the ancient family of that name, which was then represented by Mr. William Patrickson, of Crosby upon Eden, as descended from William, the eldest son of Hugh Patrickson, Esq., of Stanwix, who died in 1711.
