Also included are the records of Chichester Congregational Church and its predecessors (Add Mss 2425-2541), papers relating to parliamentary elections in Chichester (Add Mss 2620-2715), some seventeenth-century muster rolls (Add Mss 2741), some early records of Edward Fuller, the Chichester surveyor (Add Mss 2789, 2790), the original MS. of James Spershott's 'Memoirs of the City of Chichester and its Environs' (Add Mss 2791), deeds and maps of the Stansted estate and the Dixon family (Add Mss 2854-2868), a medieval breviary of the use of York (Add Mss 2946), the case book of John Bayly, an eighteenth-century Chichester physician (Add Mss 2959), an order book of the Loxwood Turnpike Trustees (Add Mss 2965), ledgers of some local gas companies (Add Mss 2979-2991), and a medieval customary of the manor of Bury (Add Mss 3000). The documents range in date from a deed of Chichester, c. 1200 (Add Mss 2593), to the records of the Sussex County Committee of the National Register of Archives which was wound up in 1961 (Add Mss 2747-2751)
