Additional comments:

John Cole kept diaries throughout his life - and then used the diaries to produce a manuscript 'An Account of the life of John Cole of Scarborough' (started in 1829 - 18 volumes). Much of the substance of the MS is based on his diaries (and appears for much of the MS to be copied direct from his diaries). The original diaries are apparently no longer extant.
