A SPECIAL PROBLEM TO SOLVE:  

 

Blair Southerden has a copy of Anthony Kirton's petition for the restitution of his estates which were seized for recusancy in 1652/3.  He gave his address as being Morton co Yorkshire.  Was this Morton on Swale / Ainderby Steeple.  Blair would happily offer a prize to anyone who can confirm where his estate was or who his wife was at that time.
