     prior to the dates of the pay accounts. The names in the list, where
     they are in addition to those in the pay accounts, are indicated by the
     mark +. The letter B., in the margin, indicates those who received
     bounty, the information being derived from two accounts of "Bounties
     paid by the Ship Defence," amounting, in the aggregate, to £630.
     The time of service is not given in all cases, in the pay accounts, and
