Pt.2 changes: Extant year changed from late 19th cty to late 1940's. Sources Carpenter Coll. and Johnson (1966) added
7.Pt.1 change: Delete entirely. No evidence in the MS for a play and Mrs, E.H.Rudkin says the evidence is only for a title for some performance, and should not be taken to imply a play.
8.Pt.1 change: Delete entirely. No evidence in Barley MS, and MWB thinks it is a misprint for Baston.
9.Pt.2 changes: Extant year changed from c.1910 to 1913. Source Barley Coll. added

12.This is the play given by Barley (1953) as Nettleton. Mr Gibbons (not Dixon as given in Barley (1953)) took it from the notebook of W. Shadford whose workshop was at Caistor, but whose family was buried at Nettleton. It seems more likely that the play was performed at Caistor that Nettleton (Helm Coll.).

24.Given as Great Hole in source.
25.Barley (1953), p. 69, refers to Kirkington in the Wolds, which is presumably a misprint for Kirmington.

26.Pt.2 changes: 1890's changed to c.1914, and Christmas to Christmas and Plough Monday. Source Carpenter Coll. added

30.Pt.1 change: Delete entirely. Text from Tathwell, and the performance at Lusby was short-lived, by a drama group, and modified. Reasons for deletion are made clear in the Hamer and Rudkin MSS.
