Book Description

15 July 2012
Wl HI LS Ta tafte for local hiftory fo generally prevails, it is fomewhat fingular that the counties adjacent to London fhould not have had their due fhare of illuflration ;for even in thofe of which hiftoties have been publifhed, fome very interefting particulars have been wholly unnoticed. The author of the following work offers to the public what he has been able to colle6t, relating either to the ancient hiftory or prefent ftate of the feveral parifhes within twelve miles of the capital, a diftridl which furnifhes perhaps more curious and interefting matter for obfervation than any other of the fame extent in the kingdom. A brief defcription of the fttuation, foil, produce, and manufaftures; the defcent of the principal, particularly manerial property ;the parifh churches, and eccleftaftical hiftory; the ftate of population, and the biography conneded with each parifli; are the principal objedls of the following work.
