You've still lost me...

Of Netherseale, Lincoln, Coldstream, York and Durham, only
York has a currently legal extension to Royal (or, indeed, a
legal extension to any number).  Netherseale and Lincoln
have sporadic extensions to both Major and Royal,
Coldstream, a sporadic extension to Royal, Durham, to
just Major, and Annable's London, also just to Major, though
in three different ways.

As York (which was on the list) has proper, indefinite
extensions and Stamford, Wells, London and Wooler, Morpeth,
Newcastle, Canterbury and Alnwick (none of which were on the
list) all have only sporadic extensions, I think I must be
on the wrong track.
