IRHB comments

As of 18 july 2020, Wikipedia's article on the wapentake of 'Agbrigg and Morley' states that Agbrigg and Morley were originally separate wapentakes but were 'probably combined by the 13th century when similar administrative reforms occurred elsewhere in England'.[2] Yet the 1379 Poll Tax shows them still separate.
