      **Note 1 From Bishops transcript South Croxton Ellen Martyn Married Thomas Allen this was a transcript of the BT found in the Rotherby regs, the original to be consulted to check spelling. The writing regarding the bargain and sale is difficult to decipher but I am sure this is the form it refers to( i.e. a form of deed or conveyance made between the father in law and Thomas Allen or may be reference to Richard Marlers will))
