Research into the marks and the duties


I should like to express my thanks to the librarians, archivists, and others who have made the original research possible. Especial thanks are due to the staff of the following institutions and their predecessors:

I should also like to thank the staffs of: the Bodleian Library, Oxford; the British Library of Political and Economic Science (London School of Economics); Bromley Local Studies Library; the University Library, Cambridge; Camden Libraries; the Architect's Department of the City Corporation; Epsom Public Library; Gravesend Library; Towncentric (Gravesend Tourist Information); Hillingdon Local Studies, Archives and Museums Service; Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies; Museum of London; National Monuments Record; Surrey History Centre; and City of Westminster Central Reference Library.

I should like to thank numerous friends for their help and encouragement, especially those who read and commented on drafts of papers and those who accompanied me on expeditions in the field.

I should like especially to thank Roger Holmes for accompanying me and taking photographs when I visited all the posts in 1972. I should like also to express my gratitude to the Corporation of the City of London for contributing to my expenses on that occasion.

I should like to thank correspondents over the years, especially the late Maurice Bawtree, who have corrected errors and supplied information on changes.

I should like to thank householders and landowners who have allowed me access to marks on private property.
