PREFACE.

THE Directory of the Counties of Berks, Bucks and Oxon is intended to
form a sequel to the Directory of the Six Home Counties, being equally
closely connected with the Metropolis, and largely occupied by the residences
of the Professional and Mercantile classes of London.

The contents are similar to those in previous editions a general
account is given of each County, with the Hundreds and Poor Law
Unions; the Members of the ''CouNTY CoUNCILs," created under the Local
Government Act, 1888, are included, also Lists of Magistrates; and a

sketch of the Geological Features of each County, by Mr. W. J. Harrison:

then follow, alphabetically arranged, the Places in each County, with
their Inhabitants, both Private Residents and Commercial; it is stated
under each Parish the Division of the County, as formed under the
provisions of the "Redistribution of Seats Act, 1885," and in what Hundred.
Union, and County Court District it is situated, as also the Diocese,
Archdeaconry, and Rural Deanery; and the College and University of
every Beneficed Clergyman have been given, as far as they can be
ascertained : the names of the Parish Olerks are shown under each Parish ;
lists of Farm Bailiffs of Gentlemen farming their own land are included ; and
the population, from the Census of 1891, is inserted.

New Maps, on a large scale, specially prepared, are prefixed.

The Proprietors have again to return their thanks to those Clergymen,
Magistrates' Clerks, Registrars, and other Gentlemen who have assisted the
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.
