This English layout is that of Mr Hazard of Bath, shown by Stower: The Printer's Grammar (1808) reprinted by Gregg (1965). It differs from Stower No.1 and Stower No.2 in having the capitals and small capitals in the bottom rows, and in moving the accents from the right to left bay. Also, the numerals are in the Lower case.

Note that the boxes with A,B, etc are small caps. The ¦ box represents a single dagger, and ¦¦ a double dagger. The empty case configuration is that of Moxon, and Luckombe (1771), Johnson (1824), Southward (1882), Mackellar (1885), Barnhart Bros & Spindler's News (1890s), Stephenson Blake & Co (1922), Miller & Richard (1920s), Caslon (1925) etc.
