Source notes

The writer, William Storr of Scalm Park, Wistow, Selby, North Riding of Yorkshire, was a prosperous yeoman farmer. His entries in the 'Book of Remarks' were made at various points in his life. The passage cited above is from a lengthy entry about his family and ancestors. A reference to 1713 being the year of writing a few paragraphs before this point suggests very strongly that it also was written then.

IRHB comments

The form "Robin hood bay", without possessive 's', is not very common.
