'In it we find direct evidence of the persons who held the smaller subdivisions of the great tenancies of a particular period. Without its assistance, 1 know not how this information is to be arrived at in any direct manner, where the correla. tive Record, called Kirkby's Inquest, (which belongs to the preceding reign,) is not to be found, and where no information of the place is to be gathered from the Testa de Nevil, or the Hundred Rolls. One fixed period of this kind is of great importance, inasmuch as a single line is an indication of the line in wh»ch the Lordship is passing, and may very often be the means of guiding an inquirer to a series of Lords before and after the date of the Record itself; and the deter, mining in whom the possession lay, is one of the chief points in the history of the rural parishes of England.'"
