Notes
6 Presumably Oliver is Oliver Cromwell.
8 There really are two ministers with this number.
11 From White's Directory of Norfolk 1845:
"the Rev. Stephen Allen has been incumbent since 1791, and is now in his 90th year. [...] Being superannuated, his duty is performed by his grandson, the Rev. Stephen Allen, jun."
13 White's Directory of Norfolk 1854 shows:
"Wodehouse, Rev. Chas. Nourse"
