PREFACE. 



TT rHEN I had progressed some way with this book, 
and had issued a Prospectus about it, I felt a little 
uneasy as to what was expected of T^he Somerset Roll of 
Worthies^ Unworthies^ and Villains. 

Several works bearing somewhat similar titles, but 
relating to other Counties, had previously been issued, and 
consisted mostly of biographies lengthened out, in many 
cases, by well-known stories and anecdotes, which might 
be met with over and over again in biographical diction- 
aries such as are within the reach of all. From the 
first I saw no reason for putting this book together on 
these lines, and the general reader who purchases this 
book expecting to find such particulars herein will be 
disappointed. My idea throughout has been to give, in 
this first trial list, as many notable names as I knew 
of those who have been born within the County of 
Somerset, with dates and skeleton outlines attached to 
each. In this form I believe that the book may be 
useful to any one who is engaged in local research, 
because every principal parish in the County has sent 
up its * tale of men/ whether they be worthies, un- 
worthies, villains, or, what is most likely, composite 
characters * of mingled yarn — ^good and ill together.* 



\ 



PREFACE. 



It will be noticed that my aim has been to be inclusive 
rather than exclusive, and, with regard to some names, I 
shall probably be asked what were my reasons for inserting 
them. I shall doubtless, also, have pointed out to me many 
conspicuous omissions. I say at once that any one who is 
so good as to take notice of this ' experimental list/ to point 
out errors of omission or commission, will have my best 
thanks. I have issued this list as ' tentative,* or * trial,* 
because I wish to avail myself of the knowledge of others 
in any later edition of the book which may, I hope, be 
issued. At the moment of writing this preface, when the 
body of the book is printed off, I feel conscious of many 
improvements which I hope may be introduced at some 
future time — particularly the adding of bibliographical and 
iconographical notes to each entry. 

In compiling this book I have sought out many valu- 
able but obscure authorities, and to each I am more or less 
indebted ; to name all such books would be impossible. 
To Mr. Arthur Pippett I am deeply grateful for the 
compilation of an Index Locorum^ which I think requires no 
apology, and to Mr. D. Baxter for help throughout in 

revision and the verification of dates. a t tr
