Excerpt from From Harbour to Harbour: The Story of Christchurch, Bournemouth and Poole From the Earliest Times to the Present Day
Joint work, Bournemouth, 1810 much valuable information has been taken; Messrs. Kegan Paul, Trench, Triibner and Co., who have allowed The Beam of... Grenley Church and portions of The Common A took-in and The Dréven o' the Common, all by the Dorset poet William Barnes, to appear; Mr. Edward Eyres, proprietor of the Christchurch Times, to whose courtesy is due the inclusion of the scarcely less beautiful but anonymous Legend of the Twynham Beam, which appeared some years ago in his paper; Mr. Harold Vallings, author Of the delightful romance The Smugglers of Haven Quay; the Rev. Canon Cooke Yarborough, from whose Foreword to his brother's pastoral play, Contraband, several smuggling stories have been taken; and Mr. George A. B.
