Comyn's New Forest

£150.00

Product description

Hardback First Edition published in 1982 by Newsome & Associates with Lymington Historical Record Society. Numbered edition no. 474. Illustrated unclipped dust jacket slightly bent along upper edge. Lightly discoloured on spine. Green cloth covered boards with gilt title on spine and front cover. Pages very slightly yellowed towards edges. Otherwise clean and tightly bound with no inscriptions.

In 1812 the Reverend Henry Comyn took charge of the combined parishes of bolder and Brockenhurst and during the last six months of his curacy in 1817 he compiled for himself and his successors a house-by-house, village-by-village documentation of almost every parishioners family and lifestyle.

The manuscript notes came to light in 1962 in the library of the late Frank Perkins of Boldre Bridge House. Jude James, a local historian, transcribed the notes and worked with them for about 18 years. They were finally published in 1982 and provides a colourful and detailed account of country life in the early nineteenth century.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
