"The present volume is the result of an attempt, now made for the first time, to describe a large accumulation of documents, preserved in the Bodleian Library. These formerly constituted the collections of Anthony h Wood, Roger Dodsworth, Ralph Thoresby, Thomas Martin of Palgrave, Thomas Tanner bishop of St. Asaph, Dr. Richard Rawlinson, Richard Furney archdeacon of Surrey, and Richard Gough.

The several collections have, for the purpose of description, been thrown together ; and the parishes, which are illustrated by the various documents, have been arranged alphabetically under their counties. This plan has been adopted as being the most convenient for reference. The description will be found, it is hoped, as complete and concise as the nature and extent of the materials will allow. "
