Full text of "The Itinerary of John Leland the Antiquary ...: In Nine Volumes"

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner

THE 

PREFACE. 

Ilaook vpon it as one of the great Hafftnejfes of my Lsfe^ 
that £y fubltjhing and frejerving this Work of Mr. Le- 
land^j Itinerary, (the laji Volume whereof now appears 
in the World) I have been able not only to do Honour 
to the learned Author^ but alfo to Jljew my Gratitude to that 
moft ancient and moft famous University, to which I 
am fo much indebted for my Education, and to do fome Ser» 
vice to the common good of Learning. 

My own natural Inclination to the Study of Antiquities, 
and a Principle of doing Good, were the only Motives that 
fiurr^d and carrfd me on to an undertaking, in which I was 
to meet with abundance of Difficulties, occapon^d not Co much 
by the Drudgery of the Work {for that was a kind (^/Pleafure 
to me) as by the hfarrownefs of my Circumftances. But tho^ 
this Meannefs of Fortune might have been a juft Excufe for 
my aiming at Secular Advantage, yet I can fay with a good 
Confcience, (and^ I hope^ 'twill not be interpreted either at 
an Infiance of Vanity, or as a Breach of Modefty to mention 
it ) that I have not proposed to my fetf any Intereft in this 
Work^ nor ex^eBed the leaft Reward yf(7OT any onewhatfoever* 
I efteem it a fuflScient Recompencc that my honeft Endea- 
vours have been fo kindly received by feveral wirtuouSj good,* 
and learned Men^ and I fhaU retire to my Grave with the 
more Comfort that my Labours {in the Opinion of thefe im- 

eirtial Judges) will be beneficial and ufeful to all Lovers of 
ritifli Antiquities both in this and the following Ages. It 
muft however be here ingenuoufly confejfed that had it not 
been for the Contributions of the Subfcribers, the Work would 
have infallibly mifcarrfd^ and I muft have been obligd to 
depft'y and therefore 'tis my humble "Requeft that whatever 
Honour fhaU arifefrom the fetting out of this Work may be prin- 
cipally and chiefly afcrib d to thofe moft Excellent and Wor- 
thy Ferfons^ whofe Names upon that Account I have taken 
Care to tranfmit to Pofterity. 

This ninth Volume contains (i.) Mr. Leland'y Genethliacon 
Eaduerdi Principis Cambriae, with the Explication (^/difficult 
Words annex d. (i.) Ws Cygnea Cantio, and Commentary 
upon it. Both thefe Pieces {which ought to be looked upon as 
Part of the Itinerary) were grown Jo very fcarce^ that the

Places had that Copy come time enough to my hands. The 
Corredions are partly owing to my own Objervation^ and 
partly to the Information of others. I could have added 
many bepdes^ only I was unwilling to mention any but what I 
knew to be well grounded. The Annotations illufirate divers 
Antiquities that belong to this JVork^ and are a Specimen only 
of a great Variety of ethers that I could have inferted from my 
Colledions had I thought it convenient. (5'.) The famous 
Mr. Thomas Allen'/ Notes upon Bale de Script. Brit. They are 
quoted by Mr. Wood *, and I have added them on purpofe to

Britannice infcriptum inveni: guum tamen Romanorum nu- 
mifhiatum pailim per agros Bntannicos erutorum pene my-

nulla appareant, haec eft. Cautum fuit edifto Ro. impe-

The Richemont fee is very notable in many parts of Cam- 
bridgefliir. And many be beneficiarii and pay chief rent to 
this tee. 

I perceyuid by a graunt of King Henry the 4. that afore 
the blake freres inhabitid the place in Scuthfolk hard a this 
fide Thetforde bridge wher they laft dwellith, that ons was 
an hbfpital cauUid i^eafun de deu. And in the ende of 
this charter and graunte, mention is made of John County 
of Warwike and Henry duke of Lancaftre graundfather to 
King Henry the 4. by his mother fide. And yn this 
I grauntid Edmunde Gundeuille is efpecially nahiid to be 
prayed for by the freres.
