As luck would have it, item for Old Hays, Steynton, in the 1786 Land Tax for
Steynton is almost obliterated on my copy, but it seems to be near Castle
and various Pills. (Old Hays ..probably two separate fields or farms....
obliterated but looks like a capital "c"..no tenant shown...payment one
shilling and one penny three farthings, other part shows landlord's surname
as Andrew with tenant David Jordan?..payment 2-1/2d.).
The 1801 return reads: Thornton, Pill, Pill, Mount Misery, Old Hay,
Castle Hall, Castle Pill, Castle Pill Mill.....so as these are not
alphabetical, I presume they were as the recorder passed through the
district. For Old Hay, Jno. Andrew is landlord and Randall is the tenant (no
first name). The same Jno. Andrew is at Mount Misery and landlord is Sir
