From 1798 a printed form was used which contained the following headings.
Unfortunately this assessment was not on the correct form but was handwritten on a sheet of paper with 4 columns of which the fourth (amount to pay quarterly) has not been transcribed. It can be deduced by dividing column number 3 by four.
