G H de M Plantagenet Harrison: Notes on the Public Records
This series contains thirty large volumes of notes on various public records compiled by General G H de M Plantagenet-Harrison (the pseudonym of James Phillippe, a genealogist), and contains abstracts of entries mainly in the de banco rolls and the coram rege rolls.
It appears, from a study of the title pages of successive volumes, that around 1830 Plantagenet-Harrison began to research the families of Richmondshire with a view to producing a history of that area. The first volume is a retrospective collection of notes, including some Harrison family history, produced between the years 1830 and 1865, and the following twenty-nine volumes were written between 1865 and 1888.
By 1867 the remit of his research began to expand beyond Richmondshire, and he became involved in a wide-ranging study of the pedigrees and histories of families throughout England.
The former reference numbers in the piece descriptions refer to the old press-marks of volumes once shelved in the Round Room at Chancery Lane.
