Counties referred to above are not the names of the counties in which the towns are now located, but are the historic shires (or counties) in which the relevant towns were situated prior to the reorganization of local government in 1974.  Furthermore, in light of the political changes that took place in Wales during the medieval period, they are generally not the counties in which the towns were situated during the period of Jewish settlement.

Notes
3 This community or place of settlement was listed by Cecil Roth in "A History of the Jews in England", but its location is by no means certain, although no reasonable alternative location could be identified.
6 Towns from which Jews had been excluded prior to 1290.
