Editor’s Note
1 The Revd. John Brewster (1754–1842), author of the Parochial History and Antiquities of Stockton upon Tees, 1796, and of a number of devotional works: vicar of Greatham-on-Tees and Stockton-on-Tees, and then rector of Egglescliffe from 1814. The reference is almost certainly not to his son, of the same name, who was vicar of Greatham, 1818–22, but thereafter moved to a living at Laughton in Lincs.
