EXPLANATION OF ABBREVIATIONS.

s., son; 1s., eldest son; o.s., only son; y.s., youngest son; gen. cond., 'generosae conditionis;' for p.p., pauper puer, see Henry Airay, Ath., ii. 177.

4to.—Where a variant occurs, with this abbreviation affixed, the student must know it refers to the 4to. duplicate Matriculation Register, 1700-14, which overlaps its folio predecessor, 1693-1709, between the years 1700 and 1709.

The usual abbreviations for degrees are too well known to call for remark. LL.B denotes Bachelor of both Civil and Canon Law, though degrees in the latter ceased after 1535; but it may be well to mention the following terms and their contractions, viz., supplicated (sup.), dispensed (disp.), and determined (detd.), which are used apropos of degrees.
