Less difficulty has been experienced in identifying the Domesday churches in the County of Surrey, than in either Kent or Sussex; and it will be observed, that not a single church of those named below is entirely unappropriated, although a little uncertainty still prevails respecting some few of them. The difference with regard to these three counties arises partly, no doubt, from the first-mentioned being smaller than the other two; but I readily acknowledge myself indebted to Manning and Bray's History of Surrey for assistance, without which I should have been utterly at a loss in several instances. This valuable history is preceded by a nearly fac-simile copy of the Domesday Survey of the county, an example well deserving of imitation in all similar topographical works. To the copy is added a slight map of Surrey in illustration of the Survey; but this, it must be remembered, rests solely upon the authority of the writers, by whom it was compiled.
