  • Notes 
    • "Among the tenants in the other part of the township in the 17th century was the family of Ward. They perhaps acquired their estate here from the Girlingtons, who owned 12 oxgangs in 1606. (fn. 118) Robert Ward held two messuages and 12 oxgangs in 1625, of which half was held of Sir George Conyers of Sockburn. (fn. 119) His son Robert (fn. 120) held lands in Over Dinsdale in 1633, (fn. 121) and Richard and Thomas Ward answered for five hearths there in 1673. (fn. 122) During the 18th century this family seems to have acquired the greater part of the township, and the Misses Ward were the principal landowners in 1823.
