This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1903 edition. Excerpt: ...title to remembrance lies in the fact that he took the name of Rigbye by royal licence and died in 1793. The rectory of North Meols may be recommended as safe anchorage for churchmen unharrassed by professional ambition, for since the reign of Elizabeth only one rector has obtained other preferment. The shields of the various lords of Meols are excellent examples of the manner in which good armorial ornament may be used in illustration; although the Victorian beauties of the new shield and crest of Mr. Bibby-Hesketh have troubled the artist even as they would delight Mr. Phillimore. In this case the uncrested helm between its two detached crests, each upon its stiff sausaged wreath, is a survival of the bad days of armorial design. The curious shield attributed to Meols--three roundels borne in the chief--will attract students of armory, and seems to be a curious variant of the arms of Meols which are attached to the barons' letter of 1301. O. B. A DICTIONARY OF CAMBRIDGE MEN1 THIS usefial reference book carries on the work of the series of volumes entitled Graduati Cantabrigienses which have appeared between 1787 and 1884. The genealogist and biographer have now to hand lists of all Cambridge graduates from 1659 to the end of the nineteenth century. A notable addition has been made in the shape of the names and dates of matriculation of those members of the university who have not proceeded to a degree. Whilst awaiting, and we may suppose awaiting in vain, the volumes which shall give the genealogist the much to be desired particulars of the age and parentage of the matriculated, this book, which has been carefully edited by the Rev. J. F. E. Faning, assistant registrary of the university, will be taken at once into general use. 1 The Book more
