Essex Probate Courts - Numbers

On the current page there are 13 courts listed - 14 if you include the PCC. This might be the situation as in 1858 after some of the post 1830 and 1844 mergers of these courts, but the numbers still do not match the colored map for Essex probate jurisdictions that used to be on the website (I think - maybe it was just in print in a past FHL product). That colored map identified 19 courts in total not including the PCC. Why the discrepancy?

In addition it would be nice to have the colored map back online showing the big picture for the county.
