The farms are not always listed in the same order.

The first two entries in the first six columns should perhaps be read as one – i.e. the Kirktoun of Gairloch.

Further similar lists are found in ER XX p 401 1569 & Retours (Ross) (130) 1673.

Retours (Ross) (4) 1569 gives a good example of how corruptions creep in. ‘Binas’ just means ‘two’ but in the printed summary ‘Binas’ has become a name and Sandersmaill is really Sand + Miol!

Old Extent and Rent match fairly well and reinforce the 1494 assertion that Gairloch was 12m (£8) old extent.
