And, without going into detailed calculations, one would expect this to 
be a 4th degree polynomial: there are two degrees of freedom for the 
top left corner, and two more for the top right corner; the remaining 
corners are then determined.  So A014820 is certainly correct.

...this explains all of the difference. If I run a blind full

I also get 1,8,33,96,225,456,...,53600
