THIS Volume (being the conclusion of the Work)
treats of thirty-one Parishes in Hertfordshire,
Essex, and Kent, which have been already described by
preceding writers. Where the Author has availed himself of the labours of his predecessors, their authority is
quoted. Having been indulged with such liberal access
to the public offices, he has, in all matters of record, consulted and referred to the originals, whence he has obtained many particulars hitherto unpublished. The
descent of property, through the liberality of the present owners, has been continued. The church notes
and extracts from parochial registers are, for the most
part, now published for the first time.
To this Volume is annexed a General Appendix, in
which are contained such Additions to the account of
each Parish as have been procured since the publication
of the former Volumes. All changes in existing circumstances, as far as they have come to the Author's knowledge, are noted; all errors likewise, which have been
discovered or pointed out, are corrected, either in the
Appendix, or in a general Table of Errata at the end
of the Volume.
