Abbeylands' Cottages in Ballasalla, Malew 1740

Note the rental book had three columns - one for Rent (in pence) and the others for Hens and Boon days - presumeably a hangover from the days when tenants paid in kind. Boon days are days when free service must be given (e.g. maintenance of bridges etc)

(note entries are not numbered, these are added for convenience).

As elsewhere additions/notes to the entries are indicated (..) - entries which changed from one roll to next are underlined in original; (1741) indicates a note that en entry passed through the court in that year - usually May(m) or October(o). Entries indicated { ..} are those written above existing entries. In a few places it was not quite clear as to which name was being replaced.

[The name Quinney, which agrees with baptismal register and other records, appears to be written as Quirrey (the 'r' is quite distinct from the 'n' found elsewhere and very similar to the 'r' in Arthur) - I have recorded it as Quinney but wonder if the original compiler of the list was transcribing from an earlier list]
