* This represents a typical problem encountered in the
   transcription of early documents, particularly when
   the MS is damaged, the hand is generally unclear, or
   – as in this case – when an idiosyncratic personal
   signature does not correspond with lettering else-
   where in the document. Ritualised language, custom
   & practise, and common sense in context can be drawn
   on to 'crack' standard words and phrases, but with
   multiple possibilities existing for the interpretation of
   numerous letters,  Names & Places can be particularly
   challenging to decipher. It is therefore, unfortunately,
   not uncommon for question marks to remain in an
   otherwise completed transcript.
