The religious orders used are in almost all cases those quoted in the Monasticon Anglicanum, but in a very few cases variants found on authoritative websites have been added or substituted. Abbreviations are as follows:

Bonhommes: Bonhom
Bridgettine: Bridget

The "order" of certain specialised religious houses is often uncertain or undefinable, so Hospitals are labelled "Hospital", Collegiate Churches are labelled "College", and Cathedral Churches are indicated by the an Aka or Order of "Cathedral".

Some Colleges and Cathedral Churches had secular prebendaries as residents and, in these cases, the Order or Residents of "Secular" is used.
