EDITORIAL NOTE

Volume six of the Cambridgeshire History has been edited and almost entirely written by the central staff of the Victoria History. Help given to the writers by many people and institutions is gratefully acknowledged and is mostly recorded in appropriate footnotes, but it is necessary to mention here those whose assistance was not confined to particular passages: the Librarian, Mr. E. B. Ceadel, and the staff of the University Library, Cambridge; the Archivist, Mr. J. M. P. Farrar, and the staff of the Cambridgeshire Record Office; the Ely Diocesan Archivist, Mrs. A. E. B. Owen; the Royal Commission on Historical Monuments (England); the Master of the Charterhouse; and, among college librarians and bursars who gave access to college records, those of Gonville and Caius, Jesus, King's, Pembroke, Peterhouse, Queens', St. John's, and Trinity Colleges, Cambridge.

The General Introduction to the History (1970) outlines the structure and aims of the series as a whole. The names of counties by which places outside Cambridgeshire are identified in the text below are those of the counties as existing on 31 March 1974.
