Excerpt from The Gentleman's Magazine Library, Vol. 12: Being a Classified Collection of the Chief Contents of the Gentleman's Magazine From 1731 to 1868; English Topography The inscriptions and epitaphs, often quaint and singular, besides being valuable as part of the history of the locality, have been printed in this volume pretty fully. I have erred on the side of giving too much, and fear that in the succeeding volumes I must place greater restrictions upon myself. Local charities, gifts of almshouses, bene factions of various kinds are recorded in these inscriptions, and these are of some considerable importance to the present day, when so much attention is being paid to the question of funds devoted to charitable purposes.
