They were transcribed for the Harleian Society as far as the year 1877 by the late Captain Edward A. White, F.S.A. (the permission of the Dean and Chapter having been obtained in November 1876), and his leisure time for several years was occupied in annotating the numerous entries.The publication was, however, deferred from different causes- and ill-health, and eventually the lamented death, of Captain White prevented the completion of the work.His Sister, Miss Ella White, however, most kindly handed over the manuscript to the Society, and, by the desire of the Council, I have undertaken the completion of the Work.The manuscripts contained a complete and accurate transcript of the Register and a book of Notes to the various entries. By the help of Canon Greenwell, the whole of the proofs of the Register has been compared with the original, and the Members of the Society are deeply indebted to him for the generous assistance he has thus given to the Work.The Notes have been transcribed from Captain Whites manuscripts, except in the cases where be referred to certain pedigrees which he had compiled, in which case the notes thus referred to have been abstracted from the pedigrees by the Editor, and acknowledged accordingly.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
