Eventually found what I was looking for in an old notebook, scribbled in pencil and written as seen. Mel, you may want to put this elsewhere under it's own heading.
I had written at the top of the page Poll Tax Returns of 1379-81 then "don't have", then underneath Hearth Tax returns of 1660-1670's---so that is what I was looking for, then a list of letters/numbers

This must have been years ago as I take more care in identifying things now as to what they are and where they are from, just blundered on back in the olden days glad to have found anything
