PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION.
 
HE contents of this Volume appeared in the columns of the Brighton Herald in the years 1875-6-7,under the title of "Glimpses of our Ancestors," and the Author of them is induced to re-publish them in their present form by the frequent applications which have been made for the numbers of the Journal containing them. With the hope that they may help to fill up a gap or two in the history of Men and Manners in his native County, and with full acknowledgment of the large debt he owes, in respect to the matter of several Papers, to the contributors to the Collections of the Sussex Archaeological Society — especially to his old and esteemed friends, the late Mark Anthony Lower and William Durrant Cooper—he commits his work to the indulgent consideration of the Public.
