Ex. Sommis 3 £. xvij s. (£3 : 17s)
Total number of hearths: 77


The figures on the right denote the numbers of hearths in each house.
They are Roman numerals in lowercase, the j stands for 1 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 rector since 1613
