Please note that at present some of the lay diagrams do not display quite correctly, as they were composed in an earlier release of HTML. The case edges may now show small boxes within the sides, and these should be ignored. The diagrams will be corrected in due course.

Note that the dates shown for the cases are those of the source used. In some case, eg MacKellar, there are earlier editions, which have not yet been consulted. In particular, where the source was, for example, a museum, shop, or personal information, the date is of that contact, which implies that the actual origin of the case is much earlier.
