  2. Hand written entries in the Register of Licenses granted in the Division of Otley in the West Riding of the County of York
  3. Dates for the change in owner are only approximate
  4. 1881 census shows Hammond family in residence
  5. From the original register it is difficult to tell how long Edward Dobson, auctioneer, was the owner. It appears to be more than a year which seems strange.
  6. 1901 census shows Procter family in residence
  7. Wm Hutton etc. almost illegible overwriting of Edward Dobson
  8. 1911 census shows Watmough family in residence
  9. 1911 census shows Harold as John's son.
  10. Both John and Harold are mentioned in the Golden Wedding clipping.
