Rosser (sic) I do not know the signficance of a 'Dowlas' sheet, which is presumably a reference to the place of origin. 'Debts desperate' seems to be a slip of the pen for 'debts sperate' which were good debts which one might hope to recover. And what were those old books valued at twenty five shillings? I can find no reference to any books at either Stouthall or Hills farm during the seventeenth century. Perhaps there were none: or if there were, then the family valuers may have treated them as unworthy of notice.
