1 Benjamin Manning delivered a certificate. P79/JN1/398.
2 John Dunkley obtained a certificate in 1755. P79/JN1/398.
3 The draft minutes also add to the list of constables: John Holford Sworn at Slaters Coffee House before Mr Norris & Mr Tyssen.
4 Simon Compton (of Kingsland) was probably removed. William Long (also of Kingsland) appears as a ratepayer at 1014, below. H.A.D., P/J/P/68.
5 Aldwinckle had continued in office so long because of the vestry dispute over the turnpike (see introduction). By custom he should have been succeeded by Thomas Rudge, the junior church warden, but Rudge was the leader of the opposition to the turnpike and the gentlemen of the vestry therefore refused to appoint him. Litigation ensued and Aldwinckle remained in office until an amicable settlement was reached in 1739. H.A.D., D/F/TYS/12/1.
