Source notes

IRHB's brackets. The MS source is a "Rente Roule of all the rentes within the said boughrough [of Woodstock] made the twentieth daye of Januarye...1608" (etc.)[2] In order to show more clearly the relationship between the original 1608 roll and MS annotations made in subsequent years, the editor of the printed text has adopted a tabular layout.[3] For a more straightforward layout I have reversed this as there are no MS annotations for the entries cited here. Ellipses within the three entries concern editorial sigla indicating "tenant" and "occupier". Where required, IRHB supplies these terms in brackets.
