Miss Shirreff (among others) has not yet been positively identified. Presumably the Miss Jean Shirreff listed as subscriber, perhaps the same as Jane Shirreff, daughter of James Lumsden Shirreff (d.1833, apparently a brother or cousin of Andrew Shirrefs); this publication is too early for the singer Jane Shirreff (fl.1830-40)
