PREFACE.

THE Proprietors, in submitting to their Subscribers and the Public this Edition
of KELLY's DIRECTORY OF THE CoUNTIES OF BEDFORD, HUNTINGDON AND
NoRTHAMPTON, trust that it may be found equal in accuracy to the previous
Editions.

Every effort has been made to render it as perfect as possible. Lists of
the Hundreds and Poor Law Unions are included in the Topography of each
County ; it is stated under each parish in what Petty Sessional Division,
Hundred, Union and County Court District, and Division of the County,
pursuant to the " Redistribution of Seats Act, 1885," as also in what Diocese,
Archdeaconry, and Rural Deanery it is situate; and the. College and University

'

of every beneficed Clergyman have been given, as far as they can be ascertained ;
the population from the Census of 1881 is given, and the Post Office Savings
Banks and Government Annuity and Insurance and Telegraph Offices have
been noticed ; the names of the Parish Clerks are given under each Parish ;
lists of Farm Bailiffs of Gentlemen farming their own land have been added,
with a table of Agricultural Statistics.



A New Map for each County is prefixed, prepared expressly for this
Edition.

The County Councils created under the "Local Government Act, 1888,"
will be fo11nd duly inserted, with the names and addresses of the Members.

A sketch of the Geological features of each County, by Mr. W. J.

HARRISON, of the School Board, Birmjngham, is prefixed.

The Proprietors have to thank those Clergymen and other Gentlemen

who have given the work the benefit of their local knowledge by the assist-

ance rendered to their Agents while collecting the information.

• • • The Letters S.O. and R.S.O. at the end of addresses in various parts of the book

are abbreviations adopted by H.M. Post ,Office to represent Sub-Office and Railway Sub-Office ;
and if these Initial letters, with the Name of the County, are added to the addresses of letters
in lieu of the usual name of Post Town, the delivery of such letters will be accelerated.
