Editor’s Note
1 The MS is endorsed '1851' but the content and the shaky handwriting suggest the following year.
Editor’s Note
2 The 'houses' are Abney Hall and, it seems, Leighton Hall, Welshpool, Montgomeryshire, built from 1850 to 1856 for John Naylor (1813–89), who after his education at Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge, became a partner in the banking firm of Leyland and Buller in Liverpool.
