Topographical Notes. Vol. II, family and personal. ('Hessle and East Riding History')

Scope and Content

Provides a list of names of people related in some way to the East Riding or Yorkshire as a whole. Names are generally listed alphabetically by surname, otherwise by first name if a surname is unknown. Gives key dates and events in the individual's life. Mainly owners of manors but some of those listed are more connected with Yorkshire as a whole rather than just the East Riding. Sometimes several different people are listed under one surname entry. At the back of the notebook there are some hand-drawn, and edited, family trees of notable local families such as the Hothams and the Constables. It is not always clear what sources were used in gathering the information and some names are listed with very little detail as to who they were.
