'do' and 'Co Co' in Field name

I've come across what looks like 'do' a few times, in the Field name column e.g. "Pt of Penlan do". Any ideas?!

Also in Field name, what looks like 'Co Co' e.g. field B1132 on Llansadwrn, Carmarthen map.

Sylwadau

  • I have taken "do" to stand for "ditto" and the strange sign a bit like Co to be etc. Would these make any sense in your names? What i take to be etc has usually been in descriptions like "Cottage, garden etc"

  • B1132: what looks like Co is actually Do. =ditto.

    Use the orange '+' button to zoom in and you can see the pen strokes more clearly.

    etc. in the 1830's was more often handwritten as "&c", but I suppose the advent of moveable type pushed usage towards standard case letters?

    I had some Scottish land conveyed last year, and "&c" is still used in the new Scottish land documents.
