Notes:

[1] Very often the communities mentioned that officers take up more billeting room. They therefore count 1 or 2 officers for some billets assigned to 6 men instead of the 6 men originally billeted there.
[2] Many numbers mentioned count for the winter season. In these cases, there was no stabling available to put any excess number of horses during winter, but during summer any excess number of horses up to 4 times the number mentioned might be allocated to the community for grazing in the field. For this results table the number of horses stabled in winter was chosen.
[3] In combination with the community of Abcoude
[4] In combination with the community of Abcoude
[5] In summer, when there was enough hay and fresh grass available, and horses did not need to be stabled indoors, this number could be doubled.
