THE HISTORY OF THE PART OF
WEST SOMERSET

COMPRISING THE PAKISHES OF

LUCCOMBE, SELWORTHY, STOKE PERO, PORLOCK, CULBONE, & OARE.

BY

CHARLES E. H. CHADWYCK HEALEY, K.C. F.S.A.

The greater part of this work consists of matter which has never before been published. It is hoped that it will prove
an exhaustive bistory of that portion of Somerset to which it is devoted; but beyond this it will be found to contain
information as to otber parts of the same county, as well as on the topography and family history of Cornwall and Devon.
The sources of information have been almost wholly manuscript records belonging to the State and private owners. In the
Appendix will be found many documents hitherto unpublished, including a series of four rolls of the bailiff of the Manor
of Porlock. temp. Henry V. and VI., of seven rolls of the Manor of Brendon, temp. Henry VI. ; tbe Porlock rental of Cecilv.
Marchioness of Dorset : the foundation deed of the Harington Chantry, prescribing minutely the duties of tbe Chaplains
and the appointed ritual: the names of all parishioners signing the Protestation of 1641; and the last Perambulation of the
Forest of Bxmoor. The lists of parochial incumbents will be found to be more complete than any hitherto published.

Much attention has been devoted to family history and heraldry, and there is a valuable collection of pedigrees.
There is a very full Index.

The Illustrations are all original, and have been specially executed under the Author's supervision.

The Portraits are in Photogravure. That of Frances, Marchioness of Dorset, has been engraved by the King's per-
mission from the Original by Holbein at Windsor. That of Mr. Secretary Blathwayt and bis Wife are from the Originals by
Kneller at Dyrham Park, not bitberto reproduced. They have been engraved for this Work by permission of the Rev.
W. T. Blathwayt.

The Plans of Churches, of Dovery Court, and the Hall Window of the latter are by Mr. Edmund Buckle, Diocesan
Architect of Bath and Wells, and the other Bngravings are from Drawings by Ur. John Crowther.

As the interest of the Work appeals in an equal degree to the Architect, Antiquary, Genealogist, and all who care for
one of the remotest, most romantic, and most beautiful districts of England, it is believed that no more Copies bave been
printed than will be speedily taken up
