Notes:

In the Devonport & Stoke Damerel entries in Youngs' it is indicated the Plymouth Docks ExP became Devonport CP in 1824. Lewis' Topographical Dictionary of England (1848) says "Plymouth Dock" was given the name "Devonport" in 1824 by the King. However, this unit does not appear in the Census or the Registrar General's Annual Reports or on administrative maps after that date - Stoke Damerel continues until the 1890s. Youngs' actual entry for Plymouth Docks does not mention a civil parish status. This unit has been altered accordingly to correspond to the 1901 Census information indicating Stoke Damerel parish was renamed on 9th November 1898 under Local Government Board Order P.1432 and Plymouth Docks did not attain parish status. Relationships to other Devonport administrative units have been moved across to the former Stoke Damerel parish and relationships to Plymouth units added to this unit.
