Descrizione

In introducing "Warwickshire Place Names' I have little to add to the prefaces to my earlier works on Staffordshire and Worcestershire names. I have used Dugdale's Antiquities of Warwickshire for a foundation, as containing the best account of the county in his day (1656); but many places, some noticed by him as then depopulated, have now disappeared from maps and directories. I have endeavoured to deal with all places, however small, having a history and supplying the necessary forms.<br><br>In tracing them I have been able to identify several Domesday manors apparently unrecognized by Dugdale, or Reader (Warwickshire Domesday, 1835). Only six now remain unknown, viz. Altone, Ermendone, Leth, Rincele, Surland, and Ulware. I have found Dugdale very serviceable in the supply of forms, which he is careful to give in their old garb. He tells us that he spent twenty years in searching public and private records for material.
