Title: Catalogue of Additional Manuscripts

This further volume of Additional Manuscripts (Add Mss) has like to its two predecessors been compiled on the lines as indicated in the Introduction to the first volume. Once again deeds of title predominate numerically, but there will also be found a few maps (Add Mss1052 - 1067, 1434, 1477, 1478), poll books (Add Mss1035, 1096), papers relating to parliamentary elections at Bramber (Add Mss1168 - 1186), deeds and papers of a Henfield charity (Add Mss1018 - 1034), an heraldic pedigree of the Naunton family (Add Mss1315), photostats of one of Humphry Repton's 'Red Books' (Add Mss1318), correspondence relating to the Badcock, Lovell and other families (Add Mss1344 - 1412), and correspondence of Oswald Barron, Maltravers Herald Extraordinary (Add Mss1319 - 1321). The documents range in date from a deed of Chiddingfold (Surrey), 1462/3 (Add Mss1011) to the A.R.P. Action Officers' Minute Book which was in use until May 1945


Students are again asked to exercise care in quoting these documents, and to use the form indicated in the Introduction to the first volume
