caveat Our whole project is unashamedly provincial; we must work from the sources that are available to us, here, based in Winchester, the Map Collection of Hampshire CC Museum Service. It is not practical to use primary sources in far away London. Besides: there is plenty to do with what we have.

But BEWARE : none of these notes is a definitive essay about the topic. They are our working notes; we would rather share them than hide them away. You must take the research further, more soundly, before relying upon them.
