Compendium of County History

Oct. 1, 1816.
IF you deem the following Compendium of the County-History of Bedford and Berks worthy of insertion in your very respectable Magazine, I intend sending a similar Epitome of two English Counties every Month, until the whole is completed.
The Baptisms, Marriages, and Burials, are those registerd in the year 1810.
The Population is according to the Census of 1811.
The Biography is confined exclusively to Natives, with the place and year of their birth, unless otherwise mentioned.
The author 'Byro' is elsewhere referred to as Mr Roby.
Compendia of county history for Westmorland and Cumberland appeared in the Gentleman's Magazine in 1825 and 1816:-
