This is the form and extent given to these premises in the Commutation map, not particularly accurate - and I have been rather careful in tracing the original grant from the waste in 1739 - and the extent of the ground as mentioned in the rolls for two reasons. First because on remodelling the farm premises of Hungry Hall some years ago, a portion of this copyhold was taken to make an entrance and part of the garden etc. The length of 16p and 12ft as described will show how much has been laid into Hungry Hall . Secondly to show, among numerous other instances, that it has been the custom of these manors to make grants from the waste and establish it as copyhold whether adjoining copyhold or freehold property

Not mentioned in Terrier 1598 being a grant from the waste to Jn Chaplin in 1739
