1 Seawall in Bushbury, was a portion of Bushbury formed into a separate manor by a sub-infeudation anterior in date to the statute of "Quia emptores."
2 Leland, in his Diary written shortly after this date, says, "Skrimesha, a lawier now alive, a new gentleman, hath purchased the mannor with the place and parke of Northbyri at £50 a yeare, 3 mile out of Newport in Shropshire, but Northbyri is in Staffordshire. This Northbyri was Botelers of Hartfordshire. This Skrimesha hath now a 300 marke lande."
3 Blunts Hall in Uttoxceter, still exists as a local name. Leland says, in his Diary, "Blunt of Haule, halfe a mile from Uttoxcester a £10 land, some say this is the ancient house of the Blunts" (Collectanae Topographica).
4 It should be noted that whenever the property in question is vested by the fine in a body of trustees, there is always a remainder to the heirs of one of these trustees, but this is purely formal, the object of the fine being to vest the property in trustees who subsequently make a feoffment of it to the original donor and other parties in tail. The remainder to the heirs of one of the Trustees has been usually omitted in these abstracts.
