Think I'm done on this now. But can someone please explain 49a? I've got "just". I can see that just = barely, and that jut = project (in the sense of stick out)... but in what context is "s" a recognised abbreviation for "succeeeded"?

Thanks, Trevor, especially for the link. At a cursory glance I haven't picked out where "succeeded" is defined: but I guess it's probably used in the context of "succession" (e.g. of royalty)

I checked 's' for succeeded in Chambers - it's there.The entry is 's or s. abbrev: second(s);section;shilling;singular;son(s);succeeded.'

hi duckb,
i can't put it in context either, my guess would be the same as yours (royal lineage) but i don't remember seeing an example.
