Estate Confiscation Lists Per the Royal Gazette

There are a number of differences between the Royal Gazette's version and that published by Thomas Cooper and David J. McCord (C&M).  Frequently, the difference is only in spelling; however, there are also cases where the names of different people are cited.  Where a name appears on one list but not on the other, a remark in parenthesis (colored green) notes the difference.
