From general experience with workhouse registers, I would say that the column-heading in this case is irrelevant. These are probably the names of the people who ordered the paupers' admission to the workhouse. At least three of them seem to be Master (of the workhouse). The others will probably be the surname of the relieving officer for the relevant district, or someone acting on his behalf (Lawless for Conway?).

Another name might be Bailon or Barton?
