Surtees comments on the above will: `The testator appears to have been a sort of gamekeeper under the family of Ratcliffe. This is the first occurrence of nets and setting dogs, which even after this time are very rarely mentioned. In 1582, Edward Weldon of Colborne has "a paire of larke netts," which he has sold for 5s. In the beginning of the next century we have dogs occasionally alluded to. The testator was a member of a younger branch of the family of Dodsworth, of Thornton Watlass, which had settled in the parishes of Croft and Barton, as tenants under the families of Place and Catterick, with whom they were connected by marriage. They were for many years lessees of Halnaby Grange, and afterwards settled at Barton, where they rose to some consequence. Another very respectable family of that name settled at Jolby, which formerly belonged to Easby Abbey, and in 1557 Lawrence Dodsworth obtained a grant of it from the Crown at 30 years' purchase. Other notices of this family will occur hereafter.'

Note: Anthony Catterick, esq. of Stanwick, in the county of York, married Elizabeth, daughter and co-heiress of Rowland Tempest, esq. of Holmside, in Durham.
