There are two additional listings which were generally (for Militia purposes) considered with those for Holy Trinity Parish although listed separately in returns.

Colliton: and the nearby cottages in Colliton Row were owned by the Churchill Family and the cottages leased to tennants that often worked for the family. Colliton Row eventually came within the Parish of Holy Trinity, but not within the borough, an anomaly that was to cause endless litigation.
