[* 'The reference here to Peter Tavey appears to be a scribal error for Mary Tavy, since records show that Henry Pengelly was appointed Rector of Mary Tavy in 1714 (Foster, Alumni Oxoniensis 1500-1714, vol II, Oxford 1891, p 1141)]     

[In the documents, the amounts recorded are arranged in groups normally adding up to £50 (or multiples of £50), and known as 'fifties', each responsible for providing one or more soldiers; in the transcript, the fifties are separated by grey bands; see Section 2 of the Commentary, The documents described.]
