Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Carricks Ford, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

<2>It's a common practice for mapmakers to remove the apostrophe from possessive names. So Carricks Ford may originally have been Carrick's Ford. Sometimes the trailing 's' might be dropped altogether, in which case Carricks Ford might be written as Carrick Ford. For more information, please visit our Genealogy Helper Page for Carricks Ford.
