Note: ‘ROAD, STREET, &c., and No. or NAME of HOUSE’ is recorded as ‘Steelgate Cottage’. ‘Civil Parish’ is recorded as ‘Middlesceugh and Braithwaite’. This confirms that the LDS 1881 Census entry for ‘Census Place’ as ‘Middlesbrough W Braithwaite’ was a transcription error. Raughton is in the parish of Dalston, about 5 km N of Ivegill. Monkcastle is some 5 km W of Low Hesket and 4 km N of Ivegill.

Note: (1) LDS transcription of the 1881 Census erroneously gives the location as 'Middlesbrough W Braithwaite'. The original gives the location as 'Middlesceugh, Middlesceugh & Braithwaite', Middlesceugh being about 5 km S of Ivegill. Monk Castle is now Monkcastle, about 4 km N of Ivegill.
(2) Steelgate is probably the same as Steelgate Cottage
