Surnames Appearing in the Documents



I've made these extracts as accurate as possible, the usual caveats applying. However, the originals are in multiple hands, in French, English, and Latin, of varied clearness; there are imperfect Latinizations of names combined with my non-existent Latin; Anglicization is occurring; there is plenty of reason even to doubt the accuracy of entire surnames. Don't expect definitive spellings! You will definitely want to refer to the original film.

My editorial comments are in square brackets.

Names of ancestors are in bold red type.
