History of Great Yarmouth


By William Finch-Crisp


Few words only are necessary to introduce this Second Edition to our readers, beyond expressing a hope that the contents will meet with general approbation, and that much pleasure will be derived from its perusal, now and for many years to come. We would, ask, as a special favor, in order to ensure a wider circulation at home and. abroad that our friends will endorse the sentiments of the Press, by recommending this History of Yarmouth as "worthy of a place in every library." To Colonel, Duff, M.P., we tender our best thanks for his well-wishes, and courtesy in allowing the book to be dedicated to him; and also to Lord Suffield, K.C.B., for granting, subsequently, the same permission, as well as for becoming a subscriber; but in so doing we must not forget our obligation to a long list of other patrons, in-cluding the Mayor and Deputy-Mayor; Sir E. H. K. Lacon, Bart, M.P, J.J. Colman, Esq., M.P; the Vicar of Yarmouth; Rev. W. Lake Onslow (Chaplain to the Prince and Princess of Wales); and a large number of Clergy, Magistrates, Town Councillors, and leading families in the Borough, and Counties of Norfolk and Suffolk.
