Editor's Note to the Second Edition.


The first edition of this Dictionary being exhausted, it has become necessary to publish a second. This has been revised and corrected in many instances by the Compiler himself, who continued to labour upon the work till his death in 1876; since which time it has been carried on by a member of his family. A short Memoir of the Author has been appended, about 150 lives added, and the Dictionary carried down to the date of the present year. Any corrections of errors in this work will be thankfully received, and the help already given by friends is here gratefully acknowledged.

F. M. R.

Kensington,

October, 1878.
