The document has been transcribed exactly as it was. The townland spellings in 1702 were not as they are now, and in that case the modern spelling is in square brackets. The old way of spelling for example 'pofsefsors' —possessors —is retained. [Where there were two 'S's the first one was transcribed as an f, as in the word "purfuant" which is pursuant.
