Note=

The William Long mentioned in this book and the father of the two children married Miss Meade, the sister of the celebrated "Dr Meade" the phiscian and friend of King James 2nd.

WIlliam Long himself seems to have been thoroughly 'good for nothing.' Of the 2 children here mentioned - who were a boy and girl, the latter was married to our Gt-Grandfather, Mr Commissioner Marsh who sat at the head of the Board of --- Office  - and was my Gt-Grandmother. The son died unmarried and from him comes the "Antnea Fonora' (?) sword which the said William Long secured when fighting and (redurten?) at the battle of Culloden in 1749. His uncle the Phisician R. Meade was a man of much education and highly thought of and respected in his day. Our Gt.Grandmother Marsh - Nee Long - was always called (Madame?) Marsh - and was accounted 'very proud." EMC.

All which was Paid as Ordered, as appears by their Receipt in this Book of Accounts (February 1722)

But observing that the said William Long after his being returned home to his Family did not make the least Step towards putting himself into any Business whereby to provide any thing for subsisting himself or Family, but lay idling at home, devouring what was allowed for the subsistence of his said two Children, and Threatening that he would have the whole income of the Estate left for the sole benefit of the said Two Children, It was Resolved to Discontinue the former Allowances made them at Michalmas last, thereby if possible to force him to endeavour to get a livelihood for himself and then We would take care of the Children: however We desired their two Uncles Mathew and Phillip Mead to tell him, that if he would declare that either he could or would not provide the Necessaries for Subsisting his said Two Children that then if he would find out a proper Place or Person to Board them, We would Pay for the Same or Otherwise We would do it Our Selves, if he would let us have them, but he refusing a complyance herewith, It was Resolved not to advance them any more mony for the use of the said Two Children, till their Father thought fit to take other measures.
