    Nicholas Leather, Orange £10/6/6 Died about six years ago, insolvent. At no period since the peace has he been worth anything. He was bit by a mad dog before the war which produced periodical fits of insanity in consequence of which he was exempted from serving in the militia during the last war. He died suddenly in one of these fits and for many years before his death had nothing but himself. [This may refer instead to his Uncle Nicholas, since this Nicholas paid taxes in 1800 and is thought to have lived until at least 1802.]
