Various entries have been gathered under the headings 'companies', 'trades and occupations' and 'wards'. In some cases trades may indicate membership of a company rather than an actual occupation. Offices are listed individually in the index but cross references to many city offices will be found grouped under 'city officers'. Cross references from an office to the names of the office holders are given only if the latter provide additional references.

References in Roman numerals are to pages of the Introduction; Arabic numerals denote entries in the calendar. An asterisk (*) indicates a footnote in the Introduction or a note in the calendar.
