PREFACE.

THE Proprietors, in submitting to their Subscribers and the Public the Ninth
Edition of KELLY's DIRECTORY OF HAMPSHIRE, the IsLE OF WrGHT, WILTSHIRE,
AND DoRSETSHIRE, 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
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. The population from the

Census of 1891 is given; lists of Farm Bailiffs of Gentlemen farming their

own land have been added, with a table of Agricultural Statistics.

A New Map is provided for each County.

The County Councils, under the "Local Government Act, 1888," will

be found duly inserted, and various changes caused by the "Local

Government Act, 1894," are noticed.

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

HARRisoN, of the School Board, Birmingham, 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. n.nd 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

d-elivery ot such letters will be accelerated.
