APPENDIX.

Whatever faults of omission or commission are apparent in the lirst edition
of "Time-Honoured Lancaster," and I am fully conscious of many, it is at any rate
some little satisfaction alike to myself and my publishers to learn that since there are
a few crumbs of information and items of interest in the work the question has been
asked " Will there not be a popular edition ?" This question having resolved itself
ultimately into a request frequently repeated, has brought about the decision to issue
an edition at a price within the reach of the people generally. To this popular
edition a fuller Corrigenda has been added. It is not by way of any anxiety to
excuse either my own shortcomings or the mis-statements of persons whom I have
had reason to deem reliable in regard to certain matters included in the "Corrigenda "
that I remind readers how impossible it is in the first edition of a work dealing largel)
with events and dates to prove absolutely correct. Some individuals of excellent
hypercritical powers have made it their business to look with jaundiced eye for
nothing but blemishes ; some have even hurried to point out to the author a couple
of inverted letters, as if they thought his humble production was the only one in the
world containing errors, and as if for him to have erred 'in any degree were much
more sinful than would be possible in the case of any one else. People who have
not attempted a like publication are apt to forget how greatly the writer of such a
book, whoever he may he, rich or poor, is at the mercy of his neighbours, and of
persons more or less accurate, and more or less disposed to impart information. In
several instances where the statements have been very conflicting concerning certain
subjects, it has been felt that the wisest course was to leave out such statements
altogether. Where information has come from an evidently good source and has
been largely corroborated, it has been taken for granted as correct, or as near to
being so as possible. Again, it often happens that when a work of this character is
issued you meet with some one whom you did not previously know so as to be able to
apply to, who is familiar with all the facts appertaining to some interesting event
treated of, and no man can be justly censured when such a circumstance occur-. It is
not my object to notice the biassed opinions of those who have, doubtless, special
reasons of their own, trady or otherwise, for pouring contempt on a work which,
whatever it may be, is not the outcome of mercenary or profit-making ideas.

The} - are the worst birds in the wood who can sing but will not sing, and
if there be no reason to doubt the respectability of a person compiling historic and
chronological matter, it is impossible to see why he should be refused assistance,
because it is not himself who is to be considered so much as the public at large, who
naturally and very properly look for the best information. Certainly people have a
right to please themselves lo whom they impart any facts they are cognisant of, or to
decline to open their mouths or wield their pens at all. But I am content to look
upon the brighter side and to try to remember only those in all ranks who have freely
aided me during the past five years, at the same time remembering kindly those who
have pointed out mistakes from the noblest of motives. Ere concluding this appen-
dix, which I have not written without much thought, and no little reluctance, let me
call attention to one or two items not only for my own sake but for the sake of others
also.



First of all I wish to advert to the remark I have heard consequent upon
the inclusion of the account of the sufferings and executions of the Catholic Martyrs.
" Why have the Protestant Martyrs been left out?" has been asked at various times
by some whom I have met. Why? Well, simply because I know of no Protestant
Martyrs ever having suffered death in Lancaster. Secondly, let me state that the
accuracy of the list of ministers of St. Nicholas Street Chapel has been questioned as
regards one name at least. This list has been taken from authorities believed to be
correct. It is in no part added to or of my own making, and if after applying- to
several parties in town relative to the past ministers of the said Chapel I could obtain
no assistance whatever from the fact that no local person had a full list, I think I was
justified in utilising that which appeared the most credible and correct, therefore it
is enough for me to answer for my own errors without having to be held amenable
for the errors of others, if errors they have made. Autre chose. As to the inclusion of
one or two Lancastrians in the biographical section, I am informed that they either
were not are are not " eminent. " But I use the word " eminent " in its local sense,
and for defence in regard to one celebrity may say that if a man who has built a
church (a church now about to be restored), has been upwards of forty years its
minister, and who has published volumes of sermons, &c. , is not eminent in a local
sense, why on earth was his life written and his public career so dwelt upon as to ren-
der his name a household word ? If I am wrong in the use of such a term, then I
fear I shall be fur ever ignorant of the meaning of the word.

I regret to find that I am wrong in respect to tine model of the ship to be
seen within the precincts of the Town Hall, and can only say that the statement
about its being a model of Nelson's ship " The Victory " was made to me by an <>ld
Lancastrian who has recently passed away, one who took a delight in speaking of
old-time incidents, and who, himself, collected relics i if the past and stored them as
enthusiastically as I should have done myself.

Lastly, I find by the perusal of some old bankruptcy affidavits mention of
another Keeper of the Castle, one Symon Arrow smith, in 16S9-90, who appears to
have followed James Hunter. The name of another Recorder, "Mr. Recorder
Harrison," has also transpired, having been met with in the MSS. of an old Lancaster
Lawyer of one hundred and sixty years ago. This Recorder, first mentioned in
1730, must have succeeded Mr. (ubson. About this period I also find that one Mr.
Bryer was Town Clerk. I have spared no pains to secure a full list of the Recorders,
writing - to places in London and elsewhere, and going through musty books anil
papers in various libraries, but without realising my aims. It only remains for me to
add that if some one else is induced 10 supersede me, producing a superior work and
winning everyone's encomium for it, this "a poor thing, but mine own, sir-," will



not have been undertaken altogether in vain.
