Excerpt from Holmesdale Towns: A Handbook for Reigate, Redhill, and Neighbouring Districts
The historical facts herein recorded are mainly derived from Manning and Bray's History of Surrey (3 vols. Folio, 1804 This valuable work Of colossal magni tude represents a vast amount... Of persevering industry, and bears evidence of a prolonged course of diligent study, extending over a wide field Of special research. Brayley's History Of Surrey (5 vols. 4to, 1844) has been frequently consulted, but the latter standard work is to a considerable extent founded on Manning and Bray; and it is needless to add that all local publications of subsequent date have freely extracted information from the same source.
Topographical features are described as they were actually seen at the time, and presented under favour able conditions.
The archaeological details enumerated are in all cases the result Of personal Observation, aided by the most reliable authorities at present available.
That portion Of the geological article which treats the subject from an historical point Of View is chie¿y based upon the works of Dr. Mantell relating to local geology.
Grateful acknowledgments are due to many whose cheerful help and valuable counsel contributed to render the author's congenial task a pleasant occupation.
