According to Hoskins, "Here, too, there are difficulties about what suburbs to include in the urban totals which can only be resolved in each case by the local historian, but the ranking in this list is unlikely to be changed by any such adjustments. For some towns the necessary assessments to the subsidy do not survive in their completeness and I have made an estimate on the basis of what remains. Certain towns and districts were excluded from the subsidy. It is possible to make a good placing for Newcastle, but Chester, Durham. Dover, and possibly Ludlow should be somewhere in the table also. Chester would have ranked high in the table."
