Footnotes

1 The name of the deforciant is illegible, but it was doubtless John Basset of Cheadle. (See the previous fine.) The manor house of Cheadle is still called the Park Hall.
2 See note at p. 204. The Bailiwick of Dupuis was that of keeping the Bishop's Chase of Cannock. (Ingns. p.m.)
3 This name is doubtful; it may be Siverley, Sinerley, or Smerley, the u and n being indistinguishable.
