(see also D.406/1. This volume adds, to the note with that list, further information on his Hampshire origins, his family and his tenancies at Bindon, Woodstreet, Bagber, Ansty, Winterborne Kingston and Bovington, at which last he was presumably settled when this volume was compiled. The poems concern his family, friends, religious subjects and local events, including the great law suit about Hyford water meadow and Bovington weir, 1749-1753, the fire at Wareham, 1762, events in the wars with France in the 1790s, the building of a Trappist monastery by Thomas Weld, 1795, Innoculation & small pox. There is also a series of acrostics on the names of his wife and ten children, composed in 1772, and on the names of other relatives. Pages 21-30 inclusive have been cut out).
