Manchester,” in The National Gazetteer: A Topographical Dictionary of the British Islands, London: Virtue & Co. (1868)


Note[edit]

1) Entries in the gazetteer do not have disambiguation pages, such that a template being used for "Abbey" will red-link even though there may exist several articles under dabbed titles, such as "Abbey (Devon)", "Abbey (Hampshire)", "Abbey Green", "Westminster Abbey", &c.

2) Similarly, some q.v and see notices in the gazetteer may direct to names which do not exist as separate titles, such as Hants, which is actually dealt with under the entry named “Hampshire,” in The National Gazetteer: A Topographical Dictionary of the British Islands, London: Virtue & Co. (1868).
