PREFACE.

--· -~

;Trm Proprietors, in submitting to their Subscribers and the Public the present
Edition of KELLY's DIRECTORY oF So:vmHSETSHIRE AND BRISTOL, with which is
associated GLOUCESTERSHIRE, trust that it may be found equal in accuracy to
the previous issues.

Gloucestershire has not hitherto been published in this combination, but
the Proprietors having received many applications for the counties in this
form, arising from each being in close proximity to Bristol, have determined
to meet the demand.

Every effort has been made to render it as perfect as possible. Lists of
Hundreds and Poor Law Unions are included in the Topography of each
County; it is stated under each parish in what Division of the County it
is situated, pursuant to the " Redistribution of Seats Act, 1885," also the
Hundred, Union, and County Court District, as well as the Diocese, Arch-
deaconry and Rural Deanery, 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 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. Complete
lists of the Members of the County Councils are inserted.

A Map of each County and Plan of the City of Bristol have been
express!y prepared.

A sketch of the Geological features of each County is included, prerared _

by Mr. W. 'J. Harrison, of the School Board, Birmingham.

The Proprietors have to thank those Clergymen and other Gentlemen
who have given the work the benefit of their local knowledge, and also the

Clerks of the Peace 'vho have supplied the lists of Magistrates.

*** The Letters S.O. and R.S.O. at the end of addresses in various parts of tl1e book

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