relative to the state of parochial property, of which I have availed myself in the latter portion of the volume. By him the table of the Lords of the Borough was drawn up, the Abstract of the Town Act (Appendix VI.) made, the sketch of the life of his father, and the account of the Lewes Library Society composed, and several particulars communicated relative to the parish of All Saints.

The reader will regret with me that the professioual engagements of Mr. Woollgar have prevented him from taking that decided part in the work which he originally intended. Could he have done this, the antiquities of the town would have been much more ably recorded, and the volume rendered more deserving of public approbation.

Of the important assistance that I have received in the work from Mr. G. Mantell, F.L. & G.S., it is impossible for me to speak in terms of sufficient respect. His attentions have been unintermitting during the progress of the volume through the press, and his local knowledge has been freely imparted on all occasions. An account of the tumuli opened by him in the neighbourhood, (pp. 47-49) will be read with interest, and the drawings Nos. 3, 4, 5, 8, 16, 27, 28 and 29, made by him to illustrate the work, as also several sketches from which wood cuts have been executed, will manifest the interest that he has taken in the volume. am also indebted to him for the list of Roman coins, (p. 70) for the account of the discovery of an urn in the castle banks, p. (74-76) and for the notice of Roman remains in the possession of R. Weeks, Esq., F.L.S., of Hurstperpoint. The Essay on the Natural History of the district will speak for itself: it is such as might have been anticipated from the scientific author of the Fossils of the South Downs, and such as will confer some little honour on the humble pages with which it is connected.

I should be wanting in gratitude, were I not to express my obligations to the Rev. G. Shiffner, the Rev. G. P. Crofts, the Rev. W. Gwynne, and the Rev. J. Lupton, for the kind attentions they have paid to the applications that have been made to them relative to facts recorded in the church books. My thanks are also due to W. B. Langridge, Esq. Mr. F. H. Gell, Mr. Edward Verrall, and many other gentlemen of the town, for the readiness with which they have communicated information.


It has been intimated by several gentlemen, in whose judgment I have reason to confide, that the work might with great propriety be extended, so as to embrace the surrounding district. Offers have also been made by several individuals to contribute plates in the event of the suggestion being adopted. Doubtless the neighbouring district affords ample materials for a very interesting work. Few spots in the kingdom have been less explored by the antiquary, or offer richer subjects for the pencil of the artist, and the pen of the historian. If it should appear to be the wish of the subscribers that a supplement to the present volume should be published, I shall not shrink from the task, however conscious I may be of my inability to do it justice.
