           viii                   Notes.


             Page 21 3, line 4. “Thatcher” seems here a clerical error for Sutton.

           Page 214, line 1 2 from bottom. From these figures and those below

           it seems that an arm's length of roanoke (Indian shell money) was

           worth 10 pounds of tobacco, and that a pound of beaver was worth

           100 pounds, or 5 shillings. On p. 227 we find the pound of beaver

           valued at 72 pounds of tobacco. Salt seems to have been worth 5 shil

           lings the bushel.

             Page 231. The references to Ingle's arrest amid rescue complement

           the records in the Assembly and Council Books.

             Page 258, line 22. It is interesting to note that as late as 1643/4

           there was no prison in the Province but the sheriff's hands, as he quaintly

           explains, to excuse the escape of Ingle.

             Page 259, line 3 from bottom. “Mary Kitomaqund.” This Indian

           girl, Margaret Brent's ward, seems to have been of the family of the

           Emperor of Pascatoway. See Council Proceedings 1636—1667, pp.

           403, 454. By a reference infra, p. 388, we find that she added the

           name of Brent to her other names.

             Page 294, line 17. Egidius is the Latin form of the name Giles.

             Page 304, line 6 from bottom. First instance noted of a sale of

           negroes into the Province.

             Page 308, line 6. Here Liber P. R. ends. The gap between this and

           the beginning of Liber A marks the loss of records in the Ingle inroad.

           All the pages of A before p. 59 have been lost.

             Page 310, line 26. Robert Ford. This seems to have been the child

           which Cornwaleys was charged with kidnapping. See Council Proceed

           ings, p. 169.


             Page 328, line 24. The mention of brick moulds in 1647 is further

           evidence of the early manufacture of brick.

             Page 343, line 15. Brackets in original.

             Page 361, line 21. This “custom of the country,” or outfit which a

           master was bound to give his indented servant at the expiration of his

           time, is here judicially defined. See p. 470.

             Page 362, line I 2. “plundering year.” The time of Ingle's raid.

             Page 363, line 26. “ Coral.” Sic, for Carolus.

             Page 380. In Liber A, p. 151 follows p. 148 without break in text.

             Page 394, line 1. “own payment" for non-payment.


             Page 417, line 16. “his brother” for her brother.

             Page 420. This case of the dissenting juryman and the penalty

           imposed is rather odd.

             Page 454, line 5. Here the often-occurring phrase “rate of cask” is


             Page 455, line 7. “Inke.” So in original.

             Page 455, line 2 from bottom. Underscoring in original.

             Page 489, line 3 from bottom. The words “plf who had beene”

           crossed out in original.

             Page 510, line 11. A leaf has here been cut out of Liber A.
