The figures on the right denote the numbers of hearths in each house. They are Roman numerals in lowercase, the j stands for I as also does the lowercase i.

The Standforths were merchants and would be expected to have a larger house - Henry Standforth has 5 hearths, his son Robert 4.

Edward Dauny (or Dawney) the Parson, had 4 in his rectory (which occupied the land where the British Columbia Hall - Salthouse's village hall - now stands).

Edward Dawney became rector in 1643, his father Thomas Dawney had been the Priest in charge since 1613
