Source notes

A reprint issued same year includes this final note:

"The particulars concerning those that suffered in this lamentable accident, hath beene so obscured that no exact account could bee had of them, no maruell then that dilligence of enquiry could not preuent some mistake in the catalogue formerly printed with this Relation; which catalogue is now renewed and rectified, by more certaine intelligence than heretofore hath beene related".[2]

It provides considerably more detail in the list of casualties. We are now given the name of the wife of Mr Peirson of Robin Hood Court. Her name was "Iane"; their sons were named "Thom & Iames".
