Scope and Content

Entitled "Fish Book" on the front cover and "Fish Book | 1823" on the title page. The earliest entries are dated 1810, but these were copied from EGR7/6/1 above. The volume is written in the hand of George Harry Grey (1765-1845), 6th Earl of Stamford. The majority of entries have been struck through, perhaps when the information was transferred to EGR7/6/3 below. The last dated entry is from 1842. There is an index of locations on the inside front cover.
