Note: The arrangement of the index in general reflects the arrangement of the volume summarized on p. 80. Thus all places within one of the six Pottery towns in 1910 are identified to the relevant town; all other places are identified to their ancient parish. Individual potbanks, however, are grouped together under the entry 'Potbanks'; individual brick- and tile-works and mines are also grouped under separate entries. General references to various industries are indexed under place headings. General references to Protestant nonconformity are indexed under the relevant place; in the case of Newcastle-under-Lyme and the six towns there are also entries for individual sects.

The following abbreviations have been used, sometimes with the addition of the letter s to form the plural: adv., advowson; agric., agriculture; Alex., Alexander; And., Andrew; Ant., Anthony; assoc., association; Benj., Benjamin; boro., borough; bp., bishop; cast., castle; chant., chantry; chap., chapel; char., charity; Chas., Charles; Chris., Christopher; ch., church; coll., college; Ctss., Countess; Dan., Daniel; d., died; econ. hist., economic history; Edm., Edmund; Edw., Edward; Eliz., Elizabeth; fam., family; fl., flourished; Fred., Frederick; Geo., George; Geof., Geoffrey; Gilb., Gilbert; Hen., Henry; Herb., Herbert; hosp., hospital; ho., house; Humph., Humphrey; hund., hundred; inc., inclosure; ind., industry; Jas., James; Jos., Joseph; Kath., Katherine; Lawr., Lawrence; loc. govt., local government; man., manor; Marg., Margaret; m., married; Mat., Matthew; Mic., Michael; n, note; Nat., Nathaniel; Nic., Nicholas; nonconf., nonconformity; par., parish; parl. rep., parliamentary representation; Pet., Peter; Phil., Philip; pop., population; Prot., Protestant; rly., railway; Ric., Richard; riv., river; Rob., Robert; Rog., Roger; Rom.
