Chaplain in Ordinary to George II, With Samuel Kerrich Vicar of Dersingham, Rector of Wolferton, and Rector of West NewtonThe original Memoirs now first brought to light, and which form the main subject of the present volume, are part of a continuous series of the correspondence of members of the families of Rogerson, Postlethwayt, Gooch, and Kerrich, dating from 1675 to 1828, a few single letters being of earlier date, up to 1633. The entire collection amounts to about seven thousand letters, which have been arranged by the owner in twenty-eight folio volumes.

Briefly, the earlier portion, in seven volumes, consists of the correspondence of Robert Rogerson, from 1675 to 1704- of John Postlethwayt, Chief Master of St. Pauls School, from his relatives and pupils, from 1691 to 1713, when he died- and of his nephew Matthew Postlethwayt, his son and two daughters, from 1699 to 1745.

The next portion of the collection comprises, in seven volumes, the letters to Samuel Kerrich, from members of the Postlethwayt, Gooch, and Kerrich families, and from his numerous friends and pupils of Benet College, from 1713 to 1767. Of these the Letters from Edmund Pyle form a part. Then follow the letters written to John Kerrich, and to Matilda only daughter of Samuel, from 1764 to 1817, in one volume- the remaining thirteen volumes containing the correspondence of Thomas Kerrich, the well-known antiquary and connoisseur, dating from 1767 to his death in 1828.

He was the only son of Samuel Kerrich, and his letters include three volumes from the Rev. Edward Balme, 1770-1822, and two volumes from Francis Douce, 1804-1827, all replete with artistic and antiquarian information.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
