Notes

NB it is not yet clear how the registrations for James Dawkins and Henry Dawkins for 'Magotty' relate to the more numerous registrations for John Blagrove for Magotty. Magotty is shown against Robert Tredwey in 1741 and 1742: the Dawkins also owned an estate called Treadways in St Thomas-in-the Vale, and it might well be to this latter estate that the entries for Robert Tredwey, James Dawkins junior and Henry Dawkins refer.
