PREFACE. 



It is impossible for me to send forth to the public this work — the result of 
more than two years' constant labour and research — without acknowledging, in 
terms of gratitude, the kind and generous assistance which I have received, from 
almost every quarter, in answer to the circulars which I have issued to the pre- 
sent representatives of the highest families in the three kingdoms, whether numbered 
among the ' titled ' or the ' untitled ' aristocracy, who, with few exceptions, have 
freely communicated to me the information which I requested at their hands. Here 
and there, it is true, that my applications have been met with a refusal on the part 
of those who were most neai'ly interested ; but even in these cases I have endeavoured 
to keep faith with the public, by instituting private inquiries among local friends 
and correspondents, and by consulting a large library of useful books of reference. 
By these means I have been enabled to produce a volume which, in spite of 
numerous imperfections, embraces the whole of the titled, and by far the largest 
portion of the vmtitled aristocracy of the three kingdoms, and may, therefore, 
fairly lay claim to be styled, in common parlance, a ' Dictionary of the Upper Ten 
Thousand.' 

I am well aware that the first edition of such a work must be far from perfect ; 
and no one is more fully alive than myself to the numerous deficiencies to be found 
in this volume. I am equally aware that such a book must always remain, in one 
sense, imperfect in a country like our own, where, mainly owing to the influence of 
trade and commerce, individuals and families are continually crossing and re-crossing 
the narrow line which severs the aristocracy from the commonalty. But I can safely 
promise that, as often as a new edition of the " County Families " shall be called 
for, the book shall be found in a state more nearly approaching completion, by the 
constant addition of fresh families to the roll of its contents, and by carefully noting 
the various changes wrought day by day by the silent operation of births, marriages, 
deaths, and preferments, in the families whose names I record. 

I ought here more particularly to record my obligations, in the first instance, 
to the Clerks of the Peace and the Clerks of Lieutenancy who have kindly supplied 
me with the lists of the Magistrates and Deputy Lieutenants of the several counties 
of England and Wales ; as also to Thom's Irish Directory and Oliver and Boyd's 
Edinburgh Almanac, for similar lists relating to those kingdoms respectively. The 



vi PREFACE, 

details of the work, where they have not been communicated to me personally by 
some member of the faaiily, have been mainly worked out by consulting the Gazette 
and the pages of the Gentlemans Magazine — an invaluable mine of wealth to the 
genealogist and antiquarian, and useful also to one who, like mj^self, is a humble 
labourer in the field of cotemporary inquiry. Besides these, the several County 
Histories which I have been able to procure, the Peerages and Baronetages of Lodge 
and Debrett, Hart's Army List, O'Byrne's Naval Biography, the Oxford and Cam- 
bx-idge Calendars and Lists of Graduates, and the obituary notices of the daily and 
weekly newspapers, have furnished me with useful materials. 

The constant accession of fresh materials in my hands, whilst these sheets have 
been passing through the press, while it accounts for the long delay in the appearance 
of the " County Families," has necessitated the adoption of a Supplement, in which 
will be found a long array of well-known names which ought properly to have 
appeared in the body of the work. I can only regret that they reached me so late, 
and promise that they shall be arranged in their proper place in the next edition. 
It is to be hoped that the public and subscribers to the work will pardon such errata 
as they may find on referring to their names ; and they will further oblige me if 
they will kindly communicate to me those errors, through my publisher, in order 
that they may be rectified in future editions. When they call to mind that every 
sepai-ate entry involves a statement of from five to fifty facts, inclusive of dates, the 
public will be able to realize some portion of the labour of an editor in preparing 
such a work as this for the press for the first time. 

I have not chosen the title of this Avork without deliberation. I have called 
my book a Manual of the Titled and Untitled Auistocracy, and have accordingly 
arranged both these orders under a single alphabet, because I remember the words 
of James I., that " the king, though he can make a noble, cannot make a gentleman^^ 
and because the bearing of arms, not of titles, has ever been considered as the 
distinctive mark of true noblesse.
