Adney or Adny?

Ann Walker's nickname has been discussed a lot over the last year. The reason behind the choice of that particular nickname hasn't emerged so far, but Anne Lister uses it often both in correspondence and in her journal. 

This project collects references to Ann Walker's nickname, as mentioned in Anne Lister's journals and correspondence.
