Preface.

THE
THE authors of this work have at last finished the task which they set before

themselves. It bas involved a far larger expenditure of time and money than they contemplated at first, but now that their labours are finished, this circumstance serves only to heighten the interest with which they regard its completion. The first portion of the manuscript was sent to the printers in the Summer of 1869; the last in November, 1881. More than fifteen hundred pages in all have been printed, and twelve years have passed away since the first sheet was struck off from

the press.

During these years a great number of books and papers have been written on Cornwall or by Cornishmen, and as the authors have continued to prosecute their researches without intermission, they have succeeded in discovering many additional references in printed books and many curious manuscripts relating to the children of their native county. This supplementary catalogue of authors contains 343 pages, and in them are embodied many interesting particulars relating to the distinguished Cornishmen and Cornish families mentioned in the pages of the previous volumes. The list appended in the footnote specifies the names of the principal persons and families included in this catalogue.

The authors had not proceeded far in their undertaking before they found it desirable to divide their materials into two sections, the first to be classified under authors, the second under places and subjects. With the latter division this volume begins; it comprises in 104 pages many entries which will not be without interest to the student of the county or of the country at large, but the schedules of the
